Each Relay For Life event is special to its community, but the movement's true power lies in the combined commitment of thousands of participants, volunteers, and supporters to help the ACS save lives from cancer.
Each year, the Relay For Life movement raises more than $400 million. The ACS puts these donations to work, investing in groundbreaking research to fight every type of cancer and provide free information and services to cancer patients and their caregivers.
