Hamilton County Relay for Life

We're proud to be associated with these amazing heroes. We hope you'll join us to celebrate and remember. At Relay For Life events, no one faces cancer alone. We come together every year at more than 3,500 Relay events around the country to support and celebrate survivors and caregivers. Each Relay has special events and activities (many throughout the year) just for survivors and their caregivers, so they can connect with others and know there is a strong support system available to them.
