Relay For Life 2023 in Franklin County is scheduled for Saturday, September 9th from 5:00-10:00 pm at Capital City Christian Church. The theme is “Racing for a Cure”, and all teams are encouraged to decorate, dress, and play with this theme!

What is Relay for Life?

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life movement is the world’s largest peer-to-peer fundraising event dedicated to saving lives from cancer. For over 35 years, communities across the world have come together to honor and remember loved ones and take action for lifesaving change. Every Relay looks different and reflects the community it is in- times, dates, events, and schedules can shift, but you’ll always experience a meaningful luminaria service, a free dinner benefitting survivors and caretakes, events and engagement from teams and community organizations, and walking or running around a designated track.
