Relay On Suncoast

Relay for Life of Sarasota Manatee

Relay for Life of Sarasota Manatee
5851 Nathan Benderson Circle, Sarasota, FL 34235

At Relay For Life, no donation is too small; each and every dollar counts. Your donations help fund groundbreaking cancer research and patient care programs and can make a difference in communities like ours. With every donation, you are helping the American Cancer Society save lives.

Relay For Life is the world’s largest volunteer-based fundraising event. For more than 36 years, communities worldwide have come together to honor and remember loved ones and take action for lifesaving change. We strive to make this event as safe as possible and will follow local COVID-related guidelines.

At Relay For Life, community members take turns walking around a track lined with luminaria bags. You’ll have the opportunity to cheer for local survivors (or participate as a survivor) in our first lap of the day. Caregivers of cancer patients (currently or previously diagnosed) will then be invited to join the Survivors. Local entertainers will keep you energized. We will light the luminaria bags surrounding the track in a memorable luminaria ceremony as it gets dark. There will be opportunities to fundraise & fight back!
