What is relay for life

Taking place for the first time in the UAE on November 17th – 18th. Relay for Life is an inspiring overnight community event with plenty of entertainment for the whole family.

Relay is a team fundraising event where team members take turns walking around a track for 24 hours.  Each team is asked to have a member on the track at all times to signify that cancer never sleeps. Cancer patients don’t stop because they’re tired, and for one night, neither do we.

Taking place for the first time in UAE, Relay for Life gives everyone a chance to celebrate cancer survivors and carers; remember loved ones lost to cancer; and fight back by raising awareness and funds to support the work of Friends of Cancer Patients.

People from all walks of life will walk around a track at their own pace during the event. Relay For Life is for people of all ages and fitness levels – anyone can take part!

One person can make a difference – join and help us finish the fight

I would like to extend my gratitude to Friends of Cancer Patients for their constant support on a financial & moral level. My strong relationship with them for nearly two years has added so much to me both in knowledge and spirit, which has helped me move forward in my treatment journey.
