What is Relay For Life?
Relay For Life is a unique community event, teams fundraise all year and over the Relay weekend come together to celebrate their efforts in a 24 hour celebration. As well as raising money for Cancer Research UK, Relay celebrates cancer survivors, promotes cancer awareness and remembers those lost to cancer.
Relay began in 1985 when Dr. Gordon "Gordy" Klatt walked and ran for 24 hours around a track in Tacoma, Washington, raising money for the American Cancer Society. Today there are Relays in 26 countries around the world with 4 million people fundraising to beat cancer.
