Since 2010, Father Ryan High School has hosted Relay for Life through the leadership and commitment of our students. Inspired by the struggle of classmates who themselves battled cancer, students over the years have run this event with passion and dedication.
In October 2016, nearly 50 teams with almost 1,100 total participants raised more than $175,000 for the American Cancer Society, shattering our previous record and making us the top fundraising Relay for Life per capita among every high school in the world. In the past seven years, Father Ryan has raised over $600,000 for cancer research.
This year, Father Ryan High School will host Relay for Life on September 30, 2017, from noon to 10:00 p.m. This is a community-wide event where all are welcome to participate. We will begin the Relay with a special ceremony and first lap in honor of all cancer survivors and fighters. We encourage you to join the fight against cancer.
