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 $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 fundraiser.
Singapore is the 25th member country to organise RFL. Singapore Cancer Society (SCS) aims to rally the local community together to celebrate the lives of those who battled cancer, remember loved ones lost and fight back against a disease that has taken so much. It is also an excellent platform for cancer survivors, caregivers and volunteers to be recognized, supported and connected via in a strong support system.
