Raise funds, earn points, and choose your Relay Reward!

Again this year, Relayers will have the opportunity to participate in our incentive program – Relay Rewards. Relay Rewards is a way of thanking our Relay For Life participants for their creativity and passion to raise critical funds for our mission.

How do you earn Relay Rewards points?

The point system is driven mostly by individual fundraising. Here’s how to earn Relay Rewards:

  • Raise Funds: $1 = 1 point
  • Fundraising best practices – earn up to 50 bonus points by taking the following actions:
    • Making a personal donation to your page = 10 points
    • Sending an email(s) through your dashboard = 15 points
    • Downloading and accepting a donation through the ACS Fundraising App = 25 points

Once a participant earns 100 points, the lowest point total needed to redeem for Relay Rewards, they can log on to, check their point balance, browse, or redeem points in the Relay Rewards system.

What are the program benefits?

  • Relayers can earn branded merchandise that recognizes their hard work and commitment to the Relay For Life movement by awarding points for fundraising and for taking specific actions that lead to more fundraising and engagement with the American Cancer Society.
  • Motivates participants to raise more funds by not only incentivizing them to reach the next level of the program, but also to reach goals within each level of the program.
  • Rewards participants for their fundraising success, as well as additional actions that help to increase fundraising.
  • Offers fundraisers flexibility to spend their points however they wish
  • Allows participants to rollover any leftover points if they register for the next year’s event by the end of the calendar year (Jan. – Aug. events). Fall event participants (Sept. – Dec.) will have until April 1 to register for the next year’s event.

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.

  1. Hello!
    I have 4 items in my cart that I would like as Rewards. How do I continue to get those items? At one point I asked to go to Checkout and nothing happened. Can you assist me through this?
    My name is Linda Rotharmel and my phone number is ######
    Thank you.

  2. I was curious about the points I earned. It says I have 474 but I raised about 700 dollars, did the self donation, emailed through the fundraising page but I don’t see if reflected in my points. I really wanted to get some relay swag since this was my first relay. How can I look into this?
