Relay for Life is an inspiring overnight community event organised by Singapore Cancer Society that offers everyone in a community an opportunity to join in the fight against cancer. People from all walks of life will walk or run around a track of path at their own pace during the event. Each team is asked to have at least a member on the track at all times to signify that the fight against cancer never sleeps.

Taking place for the 2nd year, SCS Relay for Life gives everyone a chance to CELEBRATE cancer survivors and carers, REMEMBER loved ones lost to cancer, and FIGHT BACK by raising awareness and funds to support the work of Singapore Cancer Society. SCS Relay For Life is for people of all ages and fitness levels. Anyone can take part.

Date: 10 - 11 March 2018* (Saturday - Sunday) *updated dates
Time: 6pm to 9am
Venue: National Stadium, Singapore Sports Hub

With your generous support and help, we hope to raise $650,000 and reach out to 7,500 people.

Funds raised will contribute to our ongoing mission in minimising cancer and maximising life, and to continue journeying with cancer patients, caregivers, and beneficiaries, and scale up our programmes.
