Thank you for joining the Relay movement on your campus!

As a Relay For Life participant, you’ve joined the largest volunteer movement to end cancer in the world! From helping folks get to the doctor, providing lodging near treatment centers, and funding life saving and innovative research, the money you raise as a Relayer is fighting cancer on every front! You’re contributing to a better life and less suffering for cancer survivors while also investing in a future when no one will ever hear the words “you have cancer” again. 

While registering to walk with us is an important start to your journey as a cancer fighter, fundraising is what truly makes a difference in the lives of cancer patients around the world. Fundraising isn’t all we do, but all we do depends on it. We have plenty of resources on this page to help you raise money and make an impact! Scroll down to find out more about your role as a Relay For Life participant!


The main role for a Relay For Life participant is to fundraise and to recruit your friends to join you in the fight against cancer. Here are some things you can do to be a great Relayer:…

  • Learn about the Mission of the American Cancer Society!
  • Check us out on social media: Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter to get tons of tips and resources throughout the year!
  • Lead your fight with the “why” and share your story about why you Relay!
  • Recruit your friends to join your team! Relaying gets more and more fun when you’re Relaying with your best friends!
  • Go out and FUNDRAISE!

Why Relay? That’s easy! When you Relay, you save lives. Relay helps participants grow and develop into great leaders in the world, and it’s a great opportunity to truly make a difference. Along with also being a great and well known resume builder, Relay For Life is one of the most fun and exciting events that campuses offer.
