Join us for the Global Relay For Life Festival!

Registration is now open for the 24-hour virtual Relay For Life celebration that runs November 12-13.

The American Cancer Society will host the Global Relay For Life Festival in the ACS Virtual Campus powered by Virbela next month. Relayers from around the globe will unite to celebrate, remember, and fight back.

All volunteers are invited to register for the event at The American Cancer Society Campus will be open to all registered participants from November 12 at 6 p.m. GMT (2 p.m. ET) through November 13 at 6 p.m. GMT (2 p.m. ET).

We highly recommend you download the software and create your avatar prior to November 12. Participants will receive instructions once registered for the event.

During the registration process, each participant will choose a country/organization. All funds raised by that individual and their team will go directly to that charity. There is no fundraising requirement to join the Global Relay For Life Festival, however all of our cancer fighting missions depend on funds raised! You can show support by seeking donations and selling luminaria that will be displayed during the Festival.

The Festival will be focused on leveraging the energy that comes from the global nature of this program allowing partners to wrap up 2021 and kickstart 2022.

Activities will include live music, purchase and dedication of luminaria bags, survivorship activities, opportunities to meet others from around the Relay world, interactive tools and games, idea sharing, and lots of fun in this virtual platform.

Please note: We are looking for musicians and people to host activities, so if you have someone in your network that would want to help, please connect them to us at


The Relay For Life movement is the American Cancer Society’s signature fundraiser dedicated to helping communities attack cancer. From team members to volunteers, we all want to remember those we’ve lost, help those affected today, and take action against cancer. Through funds donated, time given, or awareness raised, our communities are teaming up to make a difference, whether we’re connecting virtually or sharing space. When we rally together in the fight against cancer through this fun and inspirational event, we can accomplish anything.
