How it Works

What is Relay For Life?

Relay For Life of Bermuda is a chance for our community to come together to recognise and celebrate those who have overcome cancer or are undergoing treatment, and the people who care for them. It also provides an opportunity to celebrate the memory of loved ones lost to cancer.

Teams of 10–15, which are headed up by a team captain, get together and fundraise for the months leading up to the event. On the event day, teams participate in a relay-style walk, challenging themselves to have a team member on the track overnight. You are invited to stay for the whole event and camp overnight, enjoy the fun activities and attend the moving ceremonies that make Relay For Life so special.

Put your thinking cap on to plan your team theme, campsite decorations and costumes. While it's not compulsory to dress up, many teams do. From superheroes of hope to clowns, pirates and space outfits, dressing in theme is a great way to get your team having fun.

Each person on a team pays a $10 registration fee. There are no age limitations or fitness requirements – Relay For Life welcomes everyone. To join in the fun, register your team online today.

Why do we Relay?

Since 2014, thousands of Bermudians have participated in our annual Relay For Life event.

Some people Relay in memory of a loved one lost to cancer. Some do it because they survived cancer. Many Relay because they have cared for someone with cancer. And some simply want to be involved and make a difference. Whatever your reasons, you’ll never forget your first Relay experience!

Together we Relay to make a difference!
