The American Cancer Society is the nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service.
We host our annual event, Relay For Life at Central Park in Santa Clarita Valley. Relay For Life event is a life-changing experience that gives everyone in our community (and globally) a chance to CELEBRATE the lives of people who have battled cancer, REMEMBER loved ones lost, and FIGHT BACK against the disease that has taken too many loved ones from us.
Relay For Life is one of our signature fundraising events for the American Cancer Society, which helps us provide free services and programs to cancer patients locally and nationwide, while also funding ground-breaking research for a cure.
