Funds raised through Relay For Life will support life-saving cancer research. We're here to help you with your fundraising.

Relay For Life brings you and your community together to beat cancer sooner. Fundraise as a team throughout the year, then join your local community at a 24-hour event to celebrate your fundraising achievements, while taking turns to walk around a track.

Relay For Life is a team fundraising challenge bringing communities together to beat cancer. Teams of family and friends fundraise for life-saving cancer research throughout the year. Everyone then unites and joins a 24-hour celebration, taking turns to walk around a track.

There are Relay For Life events taking place across the UK. Entry is FREE. You can join your local Relay by starting a team, joining a team or by taking part as a survivor.

Take part in Relay For Life and show that together we are stronger than cancer.

Teams, survivors, carers and volunteers come together to take part in a 24-hour Relay For Life event to celebrate their fundraising achievements.

Organised by a dedicated volunteer committee, this community celebration is filled with family fun.

Cancer never sleeps, so neither do we as teams set up camp and take turns to walk round the track for the duration of the event.

At a Relay For Life event there are special moments that bring everyone together:

  • Our VIP guests are our cancer survivors. Each Relay for Life event begins with their Lap of Honour.
  • A Candle of Hope Ceremony sees the darkness lit up in memory of those we’ve lost and in celebration of those still here.
  • The sharing of information about Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking science in cancer prevention gives us real hope for the future.
  • Music, games and fun from local partners get us moving.
  • A celebratory closing ceremony celebrates our achievements and inspires us all to continue the fight.

Team up with family, friends and colleagues then join Relay For Life to raise money to beat cancer. Anybody can join in, regardless of age or fitness level. Relays are fun for all the family and everyone is welcome!

Start a team
Bring together 8-15 friends, family or colleagues. Why not get the kids involved too? Set a team goal and lead your team to fundraising success. Team Captains must be over 18, but anyone can join your team once registered.

Join a team
Know someone who's starting a team? Join and get them off to a great start. Encourage others to do the same!

Be a survivor guest of honour
Anyone who has ever heard the words "you have cancer" is invited to join Relay For Life. Survivors lead the festivities by taking part in the 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.

Relay For Life raised 2.7million in 2017. Every penny goes toward our pioneering work to beat cancer sooner. Take a look at the research that your fundraising will help to fund.

Hear from a survivor

I love Relay For Life. I get such a buzz from seeing my whole community coming together as one to help in the fight against cancer. Seeing more and more people wearing the purple survivor t shirt year on year is just amazing!
