Relay For Life (RFL) is a global movement founded in May 1985 by American Cancer Society in Tacoma, Washington. Since then, it has grown into a worldwide phenomenon, raising about US$5 billion to fight cancer. Close to 4 million participants took part in RFL across the globe annually, making it one of the world’s largest fundraisers.
Singapore is the 25th member country to organise RFL. Singapore Cancer Society (SCS) aims to rally the local community to celebrate the lives of those who battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has taken many lives. It is also an excellent platform for cancer survivors, caregivers, and volunteers to be recognised, supported, and connected via a strong support system.
With a target outreach of 6,000 participants, this community event also seeks to raise $1,300,000 to fund various SCS programmes and services. To accomplish the objectives of Celebrate, Remember and Fight Back, RFL has three special segments during the event to express the importance of cancer journey.Register Now
