Become a Relay For Life sponsor

Relay For Life, the Society’s national, signature fundraising event, gives Canadians the opportunity to celebrate cancer survivors, remember and honour loved ones lost to cancer and fight back against all cancers.

Relay For Life is a 12-hour, overnight, non-competitive event that encourages individuals from both the corporate sector and community to form 10-15 person teams, collect donations and take turns walking or running around a track. Each year, Relay For Life events take place in communitites across Ontario. In 2011, Relay For Life participants in 108 communities across the province raised more than $18.6 million. Canada-wide, 501 communities joined together in 2011 to raise over $55 million for the fight against cancer.

The Canadian Cancer Society and Relay For Life were recently named Canada’s Most Valuable Property.
