Cancer changes everything. So can you.
The Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life is a nationwide event that brings communities together to celebrate survivors, honour those we’ve lost and commit to raising funds to fight all types of cancer. Every year, the enthusiasm and support from approximately 100,000 passionate participants means we can continue to make the most impact, against the most cancers across the country.
With nearly 1 in 2 Canadians expected to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, we all have a reason to take action. Relay For Life brings people of all ages together to raise funds to help Canada’s brightest researchers discover breakthroughs that could save lives, and ensure vital support services are available so that no one will have to face cancer alone. The participation of every person, team and community helps us work towards a world where no one has to fear cancer.

Why is Relay overnight?
Relay For Life symbolizes and honours a cancer patient’s journey. For the thousands of Canadians fighting cancer right now, their journey is long and hard. From the shock of initial diagnosis, through days of treatment and the long nights that follow for them, cancer never sleeps, so neither do we. At Relay For Life, each step we take is our way of showing them that they are not alone. As the sun rises and Relay draws to a close, we commit to continuing the fight for life all year long.
What happens at the Relay?
Relay For Life is a global movement against cancer, taking place in 20 countries worldwide, including over 500 communities across Canada. From coast to coast, in communities big and small, thousands of Canadians will join together to fight back. Relay For Life is about a community coming together to fight cancer. Every Relay is as unique as the community where it takes place. With local flair, the Relay in your community will offer a night filled with music, food, games and fun featuring performers from your area. Raise funds, be part of our community and celebrate life with cancer survivors.
