Team captains are responsible leading team members who share the same passion for finishing the fight against cancer. Team captains are also responsible for organizing the team’s fundraising efforts and participation in other activities regarding Relay For Life.

Since 1985, Relay For Life has developed from one man running around a track for 24 hours to an international event taking place in more than 6,100 communities and 20 countries.

Relay For Life events are held at an athletic track, park, or fairground, with the goal of keeping at least one team member on the track or pathway at all times. Teams do most of their fundraising prior to the event, but some teams also hold creative fundraisers at their camp sites at the event. Relay For Life brings together friends, families, businesses, hospitals, schools, and faith-based groups to finish the fight against cancer.
