The American Cancer Society has many ways for students to be involved with the Relay For Life movement. We offer fundraising, cancer education and leadership opportunities for all students elementary through college. In addition to the option for students to participate in their local community Relay For Life event, students and schools have the option to host or participate in their own activities.
The Relay Recess program engages elementary schools in the Relay For Life movement. The program brings information about cancer education, physical activity, fundraising and community service into the classroom. Students then have fun with entertainment and activities that reinforce what they learned.
Relay Field Day
The Relay Field Day program provides an excellent opportunity for middle schools to unite students, teachers, and parents in support of a common cause the fight against cancer. The Relay Field Day program brings cancer education, fundraising, and community service information to middle schools in a fun way.

Colleges Against Cancer
Colleges Against Cancer (CAC) is a nationwide collaboration of college students, faculty, and staff dedicated to eliminating cancer by working to implement the programs and mission of the American Cancer Society. With hundreds of chapters nationwide, CAC is showing the world that young people care and want to make a difference.
How many college organizations do you know that involve the entire campus community and surrounding area? CAC does just that through four Strategic Directions: Advocacy, Cancer Education, Relay For Life, and Survivorship. By working to advance the mission of the American Cancer Society, the Strategic Directions are areas in which college students are easily engaged.
