The American Cancer Society’s Rising Star of the Year campaign recognizes young professionals in the community for their dedication in the fight against cancer. Each year, passionate candidates compete in a fundraising challenge to earn the American Cancer Society’s “Rising Star of the Year’ title.

The candidates compete to support the Society’s mission of saving lives and creating more birthdays by helping people stay well and get well, by finding cures, and fighting back against cancer.

The funds raised through the Rising Star of the Year campaign are used in many ways:

Helping people stay well- ACS helps people take steps to prevent cancer or find it at its earliest more treatable stage.

Helping people get well- We’re there around the clock to help people get through every step of their cancer experience

Finding cures- Funding and conducting research that helps us better understand, prevent, and find cures for cancer 

Fighting back- Working with legislators to pass laws to defeat cancer and rally communities worldwide to join the fight.
