Relay For Life is an inspiring community event that gives everyone a chance to celebrate cancer survivors and carers; remember loved ones lost to cancer; and fight back by raising awareness and funds to support the work of Cancer Society. Relay For Life is for people of all ages and fitness levels - anyone can take part!

Relay For Life involves teams of people who walk or run around a track. In a relay style, each team needs to have at least one participant on the track throughout the event.

Cancer Society doesn’t receive any direct government funding, so we rely on the support and generosity of the community. The money raised through Relay For Life stays in the region and helps people in our community through the Cancer Society’s support services, health promotion programmes and cancer research.

Everyone and anyone can be involved. If you have a connection to someone who has been through cancer or is going through cancer today, or if you want to make a difference and help us reduce cancer tomorrow then Relay For Life is for you.
