Event Day Details


This year, we’ve reimagined Relay For Life into an exciting virtual event that offers our participants across the country new ways to Relay safely from home. Our virtual Relay will include all the signature components of our in-person events, including an opening ceremony with inspirational stories, a luminary celebration that honours and remembers loved one affected by cancer, performances from Canadian entertainers, and much more.

The 2021 Relay For Life will be an unforgettable virtual experience with all things you know and love about Relay. It’s a unique opportunity to come together with our incredible Relay participants all across the country and prove we are a force-for-life in the face of cancer.

Even though we will be physically apart, we will show Canadians affected by cancer that we’re with them every step of the way. Because no matter how apart we are or where you live, community is a feeling and we will prove ours is stronger than ever.
