What is Relay For Life?

About Relay for Life

Relay For Life is a year-round team fundraising challenge bringing communities together to beat cancer. There are over 50 Relay For Life events happening across the UK, and thousands more around the world.

Get together a team of friends and family to fundraise. Enter your team in your local Relay and meet other people going the extra mile to fund life-saving cancer research. Then join with your Relay community for a 24-hour celebration, showing that together we are stronger than cancer.

Meet Lorraine

Lorraine was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008.

“I had two operations, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. I really appreciated all the treatment I was given. My friend Joyce, who I went through treatment with, found out about Relay For Life and I thought it was a perfect way to help others by raising money for Cancer Research UK.

"We took part in our first Relay in 2009 and have been every year since. I’ve taken part as a Survivor, Team Member and now I’m leading my local Relay as an Event Chair. Relay is a tremendous experience, I’m hooked!"
