What happens at a Relay for Life event?  Individuals and teams set up around a path or track.  Each team has at least one participant on the track at all times, symbolizing the battle waged around the clock by those facing cancer.  Each participant raises money and awareness to help the American Cancer Society save lives. 

This year’s committee is excited to be teaming up with our Downtown Statesboro Development Authority, who is hosting our event in the downtown area. 

This year’s theme is “All Aboard! For a Cure.”  The main staging area will be just outside of Ag South on Vine Street April 22, 2022, 5 pm-10 pm.

The American Cancer Society (ACS) is the only organization fighting cancer on every front.

Funds raised from Relay For Life events allow the ACS to attack cancer in dozens of ways, each of them critical to achieving a world without cancer – from developing breakthrough therapies and innovative research to building supportive communities that come together to help those affected by cancer with access to treatment.
