Carleton University Relay for Life

Join Carleton University’s Relay for Life event taking place Friday, March 10th from 7:00 pm until Saturday, March 11th at 7:00 am.

Why We Relay

Carleton University Relay for Life is a year-long campaign that encourages the Carleton community to raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society. It culminates in an annual event where members of the Ottawa and Carleton community come together in support of those impacted by cancer and to celebrate their philanthropic achievements with food, entertainment, interactive activities, and inspirational speakers. Over the past ten years Carleton University’s Relay for Life event has managed to raise over $1,000,000 towards cancer research making it one of the largest post-secondary events in Canada.

Nearly 1 in 2 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer. Funds raised from Relay for Life support valuable services for individuals with cancer and cancer research. $100 raised covers the cost of 100 people visiting a supportive online community, and $5000 allows a cancer patient to participate in a clinical trial to test potentially life-saving new treatments.
