The official Launch of the 2009 Moonee Valley Relay For Life has been held in the Premiers Room, Essendon Football Club Social Club. Guest speakers included representatives from the Cancer Council Victoria who spoke about the work they do using the funds we raise to fight cancer.
Relay For Life is an overnight team event to raise funds for cancer research, education and patient support programs.
The challenge is for teams of 10 or more to complete a relay-style walk or run at selected venues throughout Australia. Team members take turns to keep their baton moving overnight, enjoying the sensational festive atmosphere created through entertainment, camping, spot prizes and, most importantly, the vibrancy of the hundreds of lively people on the track!
It is hours of fun and everyone is welcome. This is an event for people of all ages and levels of fitness and is open to everyone in the community, with teams formed between friends, family and workmates.
The 2009 Moonee Valley Relay For Life will be held on 27 & 28 February 2009 at Windy Hill, Essendon. Registration of your 2009 team is now officially open! We are very excited to again have Essendon Football Club on board to support the 2009 Moonee Valley Relay For Life event.
