Volunteer at Relay

North Canberra Relay For Life is Cancer Council ACT’s largest and most successful fundraising event of the year.  It involves teams of 10–15 people who complete a non-stop relay style walk or run around the AIS Athletics Track for a 24 hour period.  There is on-site overnight camping and a community festival atmosphere with entertainment including local bands, food stalls, games and family activities held throughout the 24 hours. Relay For Life is a great way for the Canberra community to get together and have some fun, while at the same time, raising much needed funds for Cancer Council ACT. North Canberra Relay For Life continues to grow each year and this year we are hoping to raise $360,000.00!

In 2017 the event is being held on the weekend of 25 & 26 March at the Australian Institute of Sport Athletics Track in Bruce.

North Canberra Relay For Life is an exciting, moving and rewarding event that is only possible with the help and co-operation of our supporters and volunteers and we would love your help!
