Parent or Guardian Consent
If you are under 18 years of age, you are required to have a parent or guardian complete a Parental Consent Form before the event.
This form will be emailed to youth upon registering for the event.
All youth are required to have the consent of their parent/guardian via the form above. Failure to do so will result in the youth being unable to attend the Relay For Life event.
There will be limited on the day registrations available.
Youth Team Supervisors
All participants under 18 years of age are required to have a supervisor over the age of 21 present with their team for the duration of the event.
You must register your supervisor by completing the Youth Supervisor Form that is emailed to you upon registering as a youth. It is the responsibility of the parent, guardian, team captain or youth to ensure the youth supervisor has completed this form.
If a youth team attends Relay For Life without the required number of supervisors over the age of 21, the team will not be able to participate.
Please note that for youth teams, you must have 1 supervisor per 10 youth participants.
Thank you to our generous sponsors
