Companies Fight Back

Become a Relay For Life Caring Company

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. In 2011, 501 communities across Canada joined together to raise over $55 million.
