Relay for Life
Relay For Life is the largest fund raising movement in the world that empowers a local cancer organization in a partnering country to promote community cancer awareness, advocate for change, and reduce the burden of cancer locally. The 24 hour overnight life-changing global event brings everyone from all walks of life in the community around you, for a chance to ‘Celebrate, Remember and Fight Back’, where we celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease.
At Relay, a unique feature is of teams of people taking turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. This is significant with the aspect of cancer never sleeps.Kenya Cancer Association, Relay For Life has been licensed and empowered by American Cancer Society to take action in health promotion which includes health education by raising public awareness on cancer risk reduction through education; advocate for cancer control management, care, policy and legal framework change; research and surveillance on monitoring trends of cancer burden, clinical and social research and patient and caregivers support.
