Relay For Life in Kenya

Relay For Life in Kenya offers everyone the opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer. It represents the HOPE that all of those lost to cancer will never be forgotten; that those who are fighting cancer will be supported and that one day cancer will be eliminated. From the very young to the old, each team can raise funds before and during the Relay and these funds are dedicated to funding the Kenya Cancer Association.

Global Relay For Life Sister Relay Guidelines - 

  1. A Sister Relay relationship should only be entered into if both parties are willing to communicate regularly and timely.
  2. This site is a self-service site and therefore any connections are done at-will. 
  3. Any contact information on this site should only be used for Sister Relay purposes. Please do not use it for supply requests, general inquiries, or other questions. You can contact globalrelayforlife@cancer.org for those requests.
  4. To be fair to all Relay events, we ask that each event only make one Sister Relay connection. Please do not attempt to pair with multiple events.
  5. Each sister Relay connection may be different - some may involve mutual coaching, Skype connections to meetings or events, or even sharing Luminaria or t-shirts. Please do what feels comfortable, right, and appropriate for your connection.
