At the Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life, we show the people we love that life is bigger than your diagnosis — and that no matter where you live, you don’t have to face cancer alone. Relay is more than a fundraiser. It’s a chance to come together and celebrate the survivors in our communities, who send a powerful message of hope to those living with the disease. For 20 years, Relay For Life has been the Canadian Cancer Society’s signature fundraising event. At Relay, you’ll see participants of all ages taking turns walking around a designated track. We ask each team to have at least one member on the track at all times, as a way to symbolize our solidarity with those affected by cancer across the country. With nearly 1 in 2 Canadians expected to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, we all know someone whose life has been changed by this disease.
