Relay for Life 2021

Relay for Life 2021: Brussels โ€“ Washington โ€“ Brussels, DC to fight cancer

For many years, AmCham EU staff and members have participated in Relay for Life, an initiative to raise funds for the Foundation against cancer. In typical years, participants would gather and relay walking for 24 hours, as a symbol of the constant battle of patients and their families. We walk to honour those who have survived, those who are fighting and those who are no longer with us, including our dear colleague Andreas Galanakis.
With the ongoing uncertainty around large gatherings, we found a different way to support the fight against cancer. Together, we committed to walk, run or bike the distance between Brussels and Washington, DC. Thanks to the large participation in this initiative, we have already reached our initial target and decided to double it. Help us reach 12,000 kilometers by bringing your family, friends and colleagues on board (while respecting government guidelines). We also hope that many will consider making a donation to show their support.

Our common objective: reaching Washington, DC together before Sunday, 20 June 2021.

Join the team 

Send us a quick note to let us know you would like to participate. Feel free to get your family and friends on board! And why not signing up with a few colleagues? Our team will then send you your personalised bib(s).
