Relay for Life

relay logo[new]Relay For Life is an overnight, community event where teams 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?DSC_1631
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.
