Registrations are now open for Benalla's fourth Relay for Life in November.June 12, 2014 3:14am
Residents from across the district are being encouraged to come together in the fight against cancer at this year’s Relay For Life event.
Relay For Life is returning to Benalla for the fourth time in November, and a local volunteer committee is already working hard to spread the message ‘hope lives here’.
“Relay For Life is a unique opportunity to bring the community together to celebrate cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost and fight back against cancer,’’ Benalla Relay For Life chair Nicole Murphy said.
‘‘With more than 100 local family members and friends being diagnosed with cancer in Benalla each year, it’s an important event to get behind.’’
More than $165
However, more funds are needed to support cancer research, education and support programs. Funds also support critical cancer research and community education programs designed to teach people how to reduce their risk of developing cancer.
Relay For Life is an all-ages event and the committee is encouraging family, friends, school mates, work colleagues, service clubs and anyone else to get a team together for the fun and inspirational event.
‘‘At Relay For Life, people bring their tents and camp overnight as a community,’’ Ms Murphy said.
‘‘Ceremonies are held throughout the event to honour locals who have been touched by cancer. There is also a great line-up of entertainment including stage performers and fun games and activities throughout the 18-hour event.’’
Benalla Relay For Life will be held at All Blacks Football and Netball Grounds on Friday, November 21 and Saturday, November 22.
Anyone who wishes to participate but does not have a team is encouraged to contact the committee so they can be placed in one.
