Relay For Life of Guam Goes Virtual After Being Postponed During Pandemic

Hagåtña, Guam – Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the previously scheduled Relay For Life of Guam will be a virtual event and has been rescheduled for June 27, 2020 as a live broadcast on KUAM TV8 and the digital platforms of KUAM Communications, starting at 6:30PM. It will also be available to view on the event website at www.relayforlife.org/guamgu. Relay For Life is all about togetherness, but the safety of our patients, survivors, volunteers and staff is always a top priority.


“During this difficult time, cancer won’t stop, and neither will we,” said Joe Rios, Relay For Life of Guam volunteer and event chairperson. “Even though we cannot currently be face-to-face, we’re committed to continuing to fight cancer head-on and hope that you will stand together with us, even when we’re apart.”

Be part of the Relay For Life movement and continue to celebrate people who have been touched by cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action for lifesaving change. Join us virtually and continue the fight from home and be a part of the Relay For Life of Guam.


“The virtual event will still have the same elements the community has come to look forward to year after year, including a parade of teams, a celebration of our survivors and a special luminaria ceremony” said Joshua Paulino, Relay For Life of Guam event mentor and luminaria chairperson. “Survivors are encouraged to register and submit a photo for the event.” Survivor registration can be done on the event website at www.relayforlife.org/guamgu. Team and participant registrations, luminaria purchases and donations can also be done on the website.


The American Cancer Society’s mission matters more than ever. The needs of people facing cancer continue and so does our work. Cancer patients still need support during this crisis. Funds raised help the American Cancer Society to continue with cancer research, the 24/7 helpline, and for continuing services to get patients the care and support they need where we can.


Help continue to bring hope to those that need it most. Join your local Relay For Life virtually to help those facing cancer. Visit www.relayforlife.org/guamgu for more information or to donate to this virtual event.
