Relay For Life

What is Relay For Life?

The National Cancer Society of Malaysia's Relay For Life (RFL) is a high-spirited event where everyone in the community can join in the fight against cancer. It is a day filled with fun, comradeship and festivities. It is time when you know people you know and people you don't know team up to raise public awareness about cancer in the community and to raise funds to find the cure.

It's 16 Hours You'll Never Forget!
RFL is an overnight event from 6pm to 10am. 
Individuals, survivors and people from all walks of life will come together to take turns to walk the track continuously. 
You can join as individual or a team of 10, for that 16 hours, there must be at least 1 person from every team to be walking/jogging around the track!

Objectives of RFL

Celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer. The strength of survivors inspires others to continue to fight

Remember loved ones lost to the disease. At RFL, people who have walked alongside those battling cancer can grieve and find healing

Fight Back!
Fight back. We Relay because we have been touched by cancer and desperately want to put an end to the disease. Make a commitment to save lives by taking up the fight

Building a Team and More
To participate in RFL, you recruit friends, family, coworker and neighbours to join you in a Relay team. In the weeks leading up to the event, each team members raised money by collecting pledges. On Relay Day, team members take turn walking around the track to ensure that someone is on the track at all times. We don't sleep that night because cancer never sleeps

In addition to the team members who are walking the track, hundreds of other participants camp out, and together, create a community party atmosphere.

Celebration and Inspiration
Each RFL starts with the Survivors' Lap, a testimony to the fact that so many people today surviving cancer. Cancer survivors from the community walk the first lap around the track to celebrate their victories while everyone else cheers them on

Luminaria Ceremony

The Most Inspirational Time of Relay is the Luminaria Ceremony which happens at dusk when we honour cancer survivors and remember those who have lost their battle with the disease. A luminaria is a small bag filled with sand holding a small candle. Each luminaria bears the name of a person who has battled cancer. All luminaria is placed side-by-side in-field around the track

It is RM 15 for each person and RM 150 per team!
If you be a Volunteer as well!
