The year 11 and 12 students at Radford College took charge today and launched the 2019 Cancer Council ACT Relay For Life.
The 20th Canberra Relay For Life is fast approaching with schools, workplaces and social groups banding together at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) in Bruce to have fun, get fit and at the same time help those in need in the Canberra community affected by cancer.
“Together we gain strength in numbers” Belinda Barnier from Cancer Council ACT said. “The trauma and impact of a cancer diagnosis is never anticipated.”
“We are seeking teams of 10-15 energetic people to register for Relay and combine their fundraising efforts to support services and research for people affected by cancer.
“We must persist and seek answers to this disease. The personal cost is too high and the far reaching affects long-lasting. It is going to take an extraordinary effort from the whole community to create a cancer free future.” Ms Barnier said.
Relay For Life will be held at the AIS 11am Saturday 23 to 11am Sunday 24 March.
People can register for Relay online at www.relayforlife.org.au/canberra
