Join the #ShareTheLight Challenge! Miss the live event? Watch a replay.

If you missed our Share The Light live event, you can watch a replay on our ACS YouTube channel. The star-studded event illuminated the critical need to raise funds for cancer research and patient support during a global pandemic.

You can help us reach our goal of raising $512 million by joining the #ShareTheLight Challenge. This challenge will represent both the eternal flame in the fight against cancer and grow the impact of individual donations through donation matches.  For more information, visit

Share a photo or video with your light – a match, candle, luminaria – to honor a survivor and then post it to social media and challenge your friends and family members to share the light and make a donation. Be sure to tag the American Cancer Society and use the hashtag #ShareTheLight.

  • Sample video script: I'm lighting this match in honor of my best friend's dad Scott Dietrich who lost his battle to cancer and for Lori Zenker who currently got word she is officially cancer free, but is still actively recovering. It's so important to put faces and names to this horrible disease That is why I'm sharing the light and donating $50 to the American Cancer Society in Scott and Lori's honor. I challenge Natalie Ault, Jordy Anderson, and Lukas Metz to make Share the Light in the fight against cancer and match my donation!
  • Sample social post: Cancer affects us ALL. I nominate @NatalieAult, @JordyAnderson, and @LukasMetz to donate to @AmericanCancerSociety and post how you are going to #ShareTheLight in honor of those who have fought, are fighting, and will fight cancer in their lifetime.
