Local Events

We invite you to join us as a participant or volunteer with any of our exciting fundraising events.

Relay For Life® – Join friends and family to celebrate those who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. Get involved by joining or creating a team, helping fund raise in your community, or donating to Relay event participants.


Making Strides Against Breast Cancer® –  Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is our premier breast cancer event, raising both dollars and awareness to fight the disease. Walks are held nationwide each year to celebrate people who have battled breast cancer, educate people about ways to reduce their risk, and empower communities to join the fight. 

Distinguished Events – Communities across the country offer a variety of balls, galas, and theme parties benefiting the lifesaving work of the American Cancer Society. Please contact your local ACS office for more information on distinguished events or see the calendar of events.
