THE RELAY EXPERIENCE
1. Pre-event Fundraising
From bake sales to car washes and lots of social media posts, you’ll have plenty of fun raising funds and awareness well before your Relay For Life event.
2. Meet with Your Team
Find your team and let the event begin! Most teams set up a tent for their home base, so you’ll always have a place to recharge, paint faces, or just grab some shade.
3. Opening Ceremony
Kick things off right with an opening ceremony welcoming all the Relay participants. There may even be live music and special guests to help get you pumped for a day of remembrance and celebration.
4. Survivor and Caregiver Laps
First the survivors take a celebratory lap, with the crowd cheering them on. Then caregivers take their turn to get recognized for all they do to support their loved ones.
5. Time to Celebrate!
Once the event is in full swing, teammates take turns walking the track or path to symbolize the ongoing fight against cancer. Between laps, you can check out other teams’ tents for games and activities, and help support the cause by purchasing raffle tickets or food.
6. Lighting the Luminaria
We light Luminaria to remember those we’ve lost, celebrate cancer survivors, and show everyone affected by cancer that we are the light in the darkness.
7. Closing Ceremony
Last, but certainly not least, you’ll participate in a closing ceremony to recognize all our event volunteers, the community’s hard work, and the fact that our fight will keep going until the world is free from cancer!
HOW YOU CAN PARTICIPATE
Join a team before the event, or come out on the event day to celebrate survivors and support the fight against cancer.
It’s up to you to recruit members, set fundraising goals, organize fundraising activities, and most of all, cheer on your team.
Join an existing team and use your inspiring story to raise money and help fund everything from breakthrough cancer research to free rides to chemo.
We can’t pull it all off without our volunteers pitching in to do everything from setting up tents to lighting Luminaria. You can even take on a bigger role as part of our Event Leadership Team.
