Relay for Life 2019

What is Relay For Life?

Relay For Life is an inspiring, community event for people of all ages and fitness levels. At Relay For Life, we celebrate the lives of cancer survivors and carers, remember loved ones we have lost, and empower people and communities to fight back against cancer.

Teams take part in an overnight walk/run relay while enjoying entertainment and activities. Because it’s a team event, people taking part may come and go as they like. But it’s so much fun, you’ll find it hard to leave!

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.

Who gets involved?

Relay For Life is a community event and everyone is welcome. Many businesses, schools and service groups enter teams each year. Relay For Life is a great way to support teambuilding and strengthen community networks. Family/whanau and friends enter teams, motivated by the chance to have fun and support the work of the Cancer Society.

Be involved

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.

If you would like to find out more about joining a committee email info@cansoc.org.nz
