Relay For Life  represents the hope that those who have lost their lives to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported and that one day we will live in a cancerfree world.

Relay is an overnight team event to raise awareness and funds for the Cancer Society. All funds raised are used to improve community wellbeing by reducing the incidence and impact of cancer.

Teams of ten or more take part in a walk/run, keeping a team member with a baton on the track at all times. A festive atmosphere is created with decorated tents, free entertainment, spot prizes, breakfast and activities.
