Young people are often told they can’t make a large impact on the world, but Relay is proof that we can accomplish great things when we work together.
Your donation directly supports those touched by cancer and those working tirelessly to help them
Get your school involved and host a Relay For Life event
To transform the future of cancer one collective stride at a time
With your support, we can:
More people are surviving cancer than ever before. Today, around 64% of Canadians diagnosed with cancer will survive at least 5 years after their diagnosis compared to 55% in the early 1990s.
Our researchers are working to prevent cancer while we promote healthy lifestyles. We shape health policies that protect our health and support people who have cancer, as well as their caregivers.
We provide a support system to help Canadians diagnosed with cancer live their lives as fully as possible by enhancing their quality of life.
Stories from students
It made me feel like we are all connected by this disease, and it made me feel not alone in terms of my emotions and feelings. I loved this event and the [students] who organized it should be very proud.
[Relay] opened my eyes to see what I was capable of and how I could help people in the world and in my community by doing something so small but that meant so much to me.
CCS continues to bring engagement throughout my entire school year for all students, constantly making us wonder what limits we can cross and what boundaries we can break.
I’m just a regular high school student that had a voice and Relay For Life gave me the microphone and the platform to not only share my voice but to also help others share theirs.
The skills I gained from Relay I will carry with me and apply throughout my life. I would not be as confident in my leadership abilities without Relay.
[Relay] has this extraordinary power to uplift, celebrate, support, and inspire all those in attendance, which is what keeps me coming back every single year.
Together, we can change the future of cancer. Join your school and students from across the country at Relay For Life.
