The Relay for Life movement is dedicated to helping communities attack cancer. Through funds donated, time given, or awareness raised, the Carson community is teaming up to make a difference. Relay for Life began in 1985 and now millions of Americans participate in relay events throughout the nation. Internationally, the program has also seen an increase in support, with relays now operating or planned in over two dozen nations.

Aside from raising money through sponsorship, the event creates a unique spirit of camaraderie among those who have survived cancer or currently share the same experience.

“Relay For Life is an opportunity to remember those we’ve lost, help those affected today, and is a chance for everyone to get involved and take action for lifesaving change,“ said Mayor of Carson Lula Davis-Holmes.
American Cancer Society (ACS) estimates that 1 out of 3 people in the US will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Relay For Life empowers communities and provides the opportunity to take action against cancer. Funds raised help ACS fund and conduct breakthrough research and gives cancer patients and their families the resources they need, like free rides to chemo, free places to stay near hospitals, and a live 24/7 helpline for answers and support.
