About Relay For Life

Relay For Life brings you and your town together to help beat cancer sooner.

Throughout the year, teams of 8 to 15 people get together and fundraise in their local communities to support the work of Cancer Research UK. Then everyone comes together in an inspiring overnight celebration and commemoration that the whole community can be part of.

On the day of Relay For Life Peterhead you can expect a celebratory mix of music, games, entertainment, food, fundraising and perhaps a few surprises! Whilst the event is in full swing, members of each team will take turns to walk around the track to show that cancer never sleeps.

Take part

Join us for Relay For Life Peterhead and be part of something special. You can take part by starting a team and becoming the Team Captain, joining a team as a Team Member or by taking part as a Survivor.

Survivors' Lap of Honour

Relay For Life Peterhead will begin with the inspiring Survivors' Lap of Honour. Cancer survivors will walk the first lap of the course, cheered and supported by the community. Together we celebrate life and the efforts we are all making to help beat cancer sooner.

Candle of Hope ceremony

As the evening draws in, everyone gathers to light Candles of Hope and pay tribute to those whose lives have been affected by cancer. Bags are decorated and lit up by a glowing candle so that poignant messages of remembrance and celebration line the track to create a moving and unforgettable moment.

The closing ceremony

At the end of Relay For Life Peterhead, everyone joins together for a final lap to celebrate their fundraising achievements and look back on an unforgettable experience.

Three ways to Relay

Anyone can take part in Relay For Life there are no age limits. If you have lived with cancer you can start or join a team and/or take part as a VIP guest of honour.


Bring together 8-15 friends, family or colleagues. Get the kids involved. Set a team goal (we suggest 200 per person), and lead your team to fundraising success. At the Relay For Life event you’ll lead from the front as your team proves that together we’re stronger than cancer.


Know someone who’s starting a team? Get them off to a great start by joining them, and encourage others to do the same! You’ll have fun and an amazing sense of achievement as you smash your fundraising target together before joining each other for a Relay For Life event to remember.


Anyone who has ever heard the words “you have cancer” is invited to join Relay For Life as VIP guest, and to lead the festivities by taking part in the Survivors’ Lap of Honour. We encourage Survivors to invite a caregiver (someone who has looked after you, held your hand or been a friend during your illness) to join the celebrations, too


Get in touch by calling 0300 123 1026 (9:00am to 5:00pm, Monday to Friday) or email us at

And... Each Relay is led by a committed group of volunteers, led by an Event Chair. These volunteer leaders are the backbone of the whole experience. They work all year round supporting each team’s fundraising and creating an unforgettable Relay celebration event. If you have questions about the event itself, or your fundraising, you can contact your local Relay For Life Event Chair directly:
