Relay For Life of the Lakeshore

Relay For Life of the Lakeshore Call 1-800-227-2345 for cancer information, any time, day or night. Our specialists can also help you locate your local Relay For Life event! Visit us at www.RelayForLife.org for more Relay For Life information.
Relay For Life is a fun-filled overnight event designed to celebrate survivorship and raise money for research and programs of your American Cancer Society. During the event, teams of people gather at schools, fairgrounds, or parks and take turns walking or running laps. Each team tries to keep at least one team member on the track at all times.

What Happens at a Relay Event There are many moments that create the Relay experience. Specific details vary by event. But the key moments that all events share in common are listed below: Survivors Lap Relay starts with a Survivors Lap – an inspirational time when survivors are invited to circle the track together and help everyone celebrate the victories we’ve achieved over cancer. We also recognize and celebrate caregivers at Relay For Life. These individuals give their time, love, and support to friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers who face cancer. Luminaria Ceremony After dark, we honor people who have been touched by cancer and remember loved ones lost to the disease during the Luminaria Ceremony. Candles are lit inside bags filled with sand, each one bearing the name of a person touched by cancer, and participants often walk a lap in silence. Fight Back Ceremony Last, there is a Fight Back Ceremony, where we make a personal commitment to save lives by taking up the fight against cancer. That personal commitment may be to do something as simple as getting a screening test, quitting smoking, or talking to elected officials about cancer. By taking action, people are personally taking steps to save lives and fight back against a disease that takes too much.

Mission: The American Cancer Society is the nationwide community based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lived and diminishing suffering from cancer through research, education, advocacy and service.

#FrontlineFriday 💙💞💙

On #FrontlinesFriday we're highlighting American Cancer Society volunteers from Wisconsin helping on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Today we honor Lisa Prell, a cancer survivor who works in the cancer center at Aspirus. Lisa is also a proud Relayer, having been a part of the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Wausau for 20+ years. She's that event's Survivor Chair & the Team Captain for Team Aspirus. Lisa says, "Relay is a great way to spread hope & remember those we've lost along the way."

Join us in thanking Lisa for all she does to help fight cancer!
