The journey to end cancer starts with a single step.

The American Cancer Society invites you to take that step with us by joining the global Relay For Life movement. When you walk to end cancer at a Relay event, it’s your opportunity to not only honor cancer survivors and remember loved ones lost, but also to raise awareness about what we can do to stay well from cancer and raise money to help fuel the world’s largest walk to end cancer.

Relay For Life is a fun-filled overnight walk-a-thon event designed to celebrate survivorship and raise money for the American Cancer Society (ACS). It is not a race! Anyone can enter as an individual or form a team to Relay in honor of a relative/friend. Team members take turns walking the laps throughout the evening – that’s where the “relay” in Relay For Life comes from.

ACS Purple bannerIt’s a party atmosphere with special events (opening ceremony, luminaria ceremony, fight back ceremony), games, give-aways, activities, DJ, and lots to buy! Possible activities include a dodgeball tournament, karaoke, a volleyball tournament, special themed laps, a live auction, Queen of the Relay, water balloon toss, and more! 

The goal for each team member is raise $100 in donations to become a member of the “Hope Club” and earn an event T-shirt.  Fundraising can be done online, through team fundraising activities and on the night of the event.  Team Rallies are held the 3rd Tuesday or Wednesday of each month and are a great way to learn more about fundraising and the event.

For more information about the event and the Team Rallies, go to Relay for Life of South Anne Arundel County or find them on Facebook.

All donations collected go toward research, education and patient services. For more information, contact Mr Wes Baker at
