Relay for Life

Celebrate, Remember, Fight Back

Relay For Life is an overnight walking event that brings teams of friends, work colleagues and families together in a fun, carnival like atmosphere to fundraise for the Cancer Society.

It is a time to celebrate and remember loved ones affected by cancer - and to fight back by raising awareness and funds for the Cancer Society.



Join the organising committee..

Relay is largely organised and run by volunteer committees who are supported by the Cancer Society.

Being part of the committee takes hard work, commitment and time – but the rewards of putting on a great event that raises significant funds for cancer patients and families are immeasurable.

Being a member of a Relay For Life Committee is also an excellent way to gain experience in the planning and running a major outdoor event.
