Join as a Survivor or Caregiver
Relay For Life events offer an opportunity to be part of one of the largest cancer support networks in the world. If you are a survivor or caregiver, you are invited to join the Relay For Life movement, where you will be supported by all participants.
Relay For Life participants and donors remember loved ones lost to cancer and honor those battling the disease by dedicating luminaria.
Luminaria, paper bags containing votive candles, are transformed and illuminated after dark at every local Relay For Life event. Each luminaria is personalized with a name, photo, message or drawing in memory or honor of a friend or loved one who has been affected by cancer. Luminaria can also be dedicated in support of a Relay participant. Each luminaria candle represents a person. They are our mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, friends, coworkers, and so many others.
