ACS Global Initiatives

Cancer knows no geographical boundaries; therefore, the American Cancer Society is dedicated to reducing the global burden of cancer. Through cancer prevention, treatment, patient support, and capacity development efforts, ACS works tirelessly to fight cancer at every angle.

Listen to the National Campus & Youth Engagement Team Global Capacity Co-Leads discuss about their current work within ACS and how you can get involved!

Global Relay For Life

Relay For Life became a global movement in 1995, and has since spread to 29 partnering countries outside of the United States on 6 continents. The American Cancer Society works tirelessly with our partners to ensure success throughout their fundraising initiatives while also increasing the much needed visibility of the fight against cancer across the world.
484,000+ participants
28,000+ teams
$51 million raised
43,000+ survivors

Global Relay For Life offers students and young adults unique opportunities to stay involved in the fight against cancer while traveling or studying abroad across the world! Students can seek out these opportunities as our global partners continue to grow and expand into the youth and campus market!
