You help us fight for LIFE

Every dollar you raise or donate helps the Canadian Cancer Society have more impact, against more cancers, in more communities, across Canada. The funds raised through Relay For Life help us do 4 important things:

  • Lead cancer research across Canada
  • Influence public policy to improve the health of Canadians
  • Focus our support programs on the greatest needs of people with cancer and their caregivers
  • Engage more Canadians in the fight against cancers

Your support matters

We always take care to invest your generous gifts in ways that make a difference for people in all communities across Canada. Lives are changed and saved every day with the money raised during Relay For Life.

Why we need you at Relay

We've come a long way in the fight for life. Just think today, over 60% of Canadians diagnosed with cancer will survive compared to about 25% in the early 1940s when we started funding research. That jump in survival was only possible because of caring people like you!

But cancer is still the leading cause of death in Canada. So until every single person survives, we need your help to keep fighting. For our friends, our family and ourselves.
