The Pat Flynn Spirit of Relay Awards are intended to honor and recognize an event or individual/team that embodies the same spirit of Relay that the “Mother of Relay” – Pat Flynn – inspired in Relay participants around the world.
Awards will be submitted by the Region leadership volunteers and staff. Relay events will be notified by the Area or Region if they are nominated. Regions can nominate on an area level and designate one event winner AND one individual/team winner for the Region award. The 7 Regional event winners and the 7 Regional individual/team winners [6 Regions and 1 Unified Event Support (UES)] will be nominated for the national Pat Flynn Spirit of Relay Award.
The deadline to submit nomination-based award entries is November 11, 2022. Upon completion, please email your nomination to CommunityFundraisingAwards@cancer.org. Nominations should be converted to PDFs before submitting using the naming convention RegionName_Award_Nominee (ie: NER_SpiritofRFL_RFLHopeville). Any supporting documents or photos should be included with the nomination form.
