Congratulations to our Relay For Life Award winners!

​Recognizing those who have gone above and beyond.

The Spirit of Relay Awards seek to honor and recognize all those who have gone above and beyond to help the American Cancer Society lead the fight for a world without cancer through our Relay For Life movement. From engaging survivors or an entire school community to promoting an event or creating an event experience to remember, these individual victories will collectively help improve the lives of patients with cancer and their families. 

The Pat Flynn Spirit of Relay Awards are intended to honor and recognize an event, individual and team that embodies the same spirit of Relay that the “Mother of Relay,” Pat Flynn, inspired in Relay participants around the world.  Winners and details can be found on ACSResources
