I'm looking for idea's and fun activities for the Relay for Life. A collection of idea's to keep the 24 hours fun and serious at the same time. Trying to keep people not bored because that is the worst thing when people are tired and bored. Next thing you know they are in there tent sleeping.

So I will be putting as many things I can think of and find here and would appreciate any other suggestions.

I typically provide Music and Karaoke but what else?

For some fund raising ideas check out this link and also this link

The dollars raised from the American Cancer Society Relay For Life are used to provide Hope…for the future, Progress…toward a cure, and Answers…to cancer questions and concerns.

Have at least 2 teams (number of teams depends on the number of kids) each team gets 1 roll of toilet paper to create a mummy. They get a point for:
1 - 1st to get their mummy wrapped and be OUT of tp
1 - voted best mummy
1 - 1st team to 'revive' their mummy, take all of the tp off of them AND there can be no mess... have to pick up any mess to be done with 3rd phase

When its all done the team with the most points is the winner
