What is Relay For Life?
Suitable for families and all ages, Relay For Life is an overnight community festival that empowers communities to come together to celebrate cancer survivors, remember loved ones, and fight back for a cancer free future. Teams of 10 to 15 take turns walking the track all day and all night - cancer doesn’t rest, so neither do Relayers.
Relayers are incredibly important, not only to us, but to all those who have been, and will be affected by cancer. Every dollar raised through Relay For Life makes a vital difference, as it ensures Cancer Council Victoria can continue to invest in ground-breaking cancer research, prevention programs, and support services that offer a helping hand to cancer patients and their loved ones.
Relays take place all over the state throughout the year, so there’s sure to be one convenient to you. Visit relayforlife.org.au to find one near you.
United we can prevent cancer, empower patients and save lives.
