More than 1500 walkers took part in this year’s Relay For Life in Bendigo on April 3, with 75 teams raising $170,000.

It was the Heathcote Odd Bods’ eighth year and they raised $5200 to make a grand total of about $43,000 since 2007.

Team captain Michelle Barri thanked all those who registered to walk, as well as the Heathcote community and many local businesses for their sponsorship.

She made a special mention of the Heathcote Lions Club and the Heathcote Bowling Club for their continued support.
