Relay For Life at JMU is a year-long fundraising effort that benefits the American Cancer Society. The American Cancer Society's Relay For Life celebrates the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease.
Relay For Life is an overnight relay-style event where teams of people camp out around a track. Members of each team take turns walking around the track for the duration of the event. Food, games, and activities provide entertainment and fundraising opportunities. It is a family-friendly environment for the entire community. Because it's a relay, you're not required to be there the entire time... but it's so fun you'll probably find it hard to leave!
Your reasons for walking in the Relay For Life are as unique and special as the story that motivates you. This is your opportunity to not only honor cancer survivors and remember people we have lost, but also to raise funds and awareness to help save lives. Because of your support, we are creating a world where cancer can't claim another year of anyone's life. You are helping create a world with less cancer and more birthdays!
