Join us for National Relay Weekend!

​All Relayers are invited to participate May 14-15.

This year we are virtually celebrating the Relay spirit during the very first National Relay Weekend. Unite with Relayers across the country to honor loved ones and celebrate our impact in the fight against cancer. Join us for 24-hours of activities for the entire family.

Share this opportunity with your Relay teammates, friends, family, and sponsors  – this is a weekend they will not want to miss!

Before the weekend even gets started, Relayers are encouraged to participate in Spirit Week from May 10-14. If you were already thinking back to your high-school days, this is your time to shine. Dress up, post pictures, and share stories on social media to get hyped for National Relay Weekend. Make sure to use hashtags #RelayForLife and #WhyIRelay.

Now, for the big event – National Relay Weekend! Can you participate in all 24 activities in 24-hours? Stay up all night and join a Tik Tok party, Zumba class, take themed laps around your house or neighborhood, learn more about our mission, and much more.

Take the 24 activities in 24-hours challenge. All activities can be found on the National Relay Weekend website.

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.
