Relay For Life is an inspirational, non-competitive, 12-hour overnight fundraising event that brings you and your school together to celebrate life and fight cancer. At Relay, teams gather with cancer survivors at their local school and take turns walking laps all night. Teams stay overnight in the decorated tent city, united to enjoy music, food, activities and entertainment. Tell me more about getting involved in Relay
