RELAY FOR LIFE

Relay For Life is a community sensitization program, where we make the community aware about cancer, its early detection and prevention. It is also a community based fundraising event; to raise the much needed funds for the underprivileged cancer patients.

Relay For Life is a global event conducted in 23 countries. The Indian Cancer Society has taken the initiative to introduce this mega event in India.

Relay For Life teams camp out overnight and take turns for walking or running around a track or path at a local high school, a park or a ground. Events are 24 hours long, and since, Cancer never sleeps, each team is asked to have at least one participant on the track at all times.

Relay For Life comprises of an opening ceremony, followed by the survivors lap, the Luminaria ceremony and the closing ceremony.

The funds raised during this event certainly make a difference in a cancer patient’s life.
