Relay for Life is not only a fundraiser, but also a means of rallying communities to battle cancer, and honor both cancer survivors and those that have lost their battle with cancer.  Relay consists of teams of 8-15 people who donate one night to walk or run around a track to raise money to fight cancer.  The goal is to have at least one member from each team participating on the track throughout the night.  Team members set up campsites and stay from sunset to sunrise to represent how challenging a battle with cancer can be, just as it is difficult to stay awake all night.  Participants create a welcoming and fun atmosphere to show their support in the fight against cancer while building relationships with other participants.
This year in Wisconsin, there will be more than 26,000 new cancer diagnoses and more than 10,600 cancer deaths.  The American Cancer Society works daily to reduce the number of cancer sufferers, but this is a goal we cannot accomplish alone. 
Participation in the Relay for Life of Arcadia would help the American Cancer Society come closer to achieving the ultimate goal of eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and reducing suffering from cancer through research, education, advocacy and service.
