Event Information

Relay For Life is the flagship event of the American Cancer Society. An 15-hour overnight event, Relay For Life has three main purposes:

  • to celebrate the lives of survivors who have won the battle against cancer
  • to remember those we've lost to cancer
  • to fight back in the hope that one day we will find a cure

All of the money raised during the Relay For Life event goes directly to cancer research and cancer support programs. Almost everyone has had some experience with cancer, either directly or indirectly, and Relay For Life provides the opportunity for people to actively participate in finding a cure. Our planning committee is set and excited about the planning process of CWRU's Relay For Life!
