What is Relay For Life?
Relay For Life is an overnight, community event where teams of at least 10-15 participate in a relay-style walk or run to raise funds for the Cancer Council. The event brings the whole community together for a night of fun, live entertainment, celebration and remembrance.
The Moonee Valley Relay For Life event is organised by a local volunteer organising committee on behalf of the Cancer Council.
Why do we Relay?
Every five minutes, another Australian is diagnosed with cancer. While survival rates are improving every day, cancer remains a leading cause of death. That’s why it’s so important that we raise funds to fight cancer. Every dollar raised at Relay For Life helps the Cancer Council to:
Investigate new ways to prevent, detect and treat cancers
Educate people in your community about ways they can reduce their cancer risk
Advocate for cancer control and influence government policy
Support people during their times of greatest need.
Who can participate?
Everybody in the Moonee Valley community can get involved.
There are no age limitations or fitness requirements – Relay For Life is suitable for everyone, and anyone can join in the fun! We would love to have you on our team If you want to join us please contact Sam Pennisi on 9379 5616
