American Cancer Society’s El Segundo Relay for Life

Saturday, June 7 – Sunday, June 8

Last year's event was a huge success and we hope that you can help to make this year's event even better!

Relay For Life is a 24-hour team event to fight cancer.  It raises awareness of cancer in the community   and raises money to support the programs and services of the American Cancer Society.  It will be taking place at El Segundo High School, beginning Saturday morning at 9 am on June 7, with the opening ceremonies, and last overnight until Sunday morning, June 8 at 9 am, with the "Fight Back" closing ceremony, which empowers our community to fight back 365 days a year.
A team captain gets together a team of 10 or more of his or her closest friends, co-workers, family members, etc. and forms a team.  The team members go out and collect contributions prior to the event.  Relay For Life is a celebration party at the end of the fundraising.

Participants grab their tents and lawn chairs and head to their assigned Relay For Life site.  It’s like a community camp-out.  People pitch their tents or pop-up canopies on the infield of the High School football and track stadium and take turns walking around the track for the  entire 24 hour period.  One person from each team must be on the track at all times.  The day consists of 24 hours of food and entertainment for all participants, from live bands to night-time movie premieres.  In the evening, there is a Luminaria (candle lighting) Ceremony to honor cancer survivors and remember those who passed away from cancer.
