Relay For Life is an opportunity to get together with your community to celebrate cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost and fight back against cancer.
Relay For Life began in the USA when, in 1985 Dr Gordy Klatt raised over $27,000 for his local cancer charity by running around an oval for 24 hours. Since then, thousands of events take place across the globe every year.
Relay For Life began in Australia in 1999, when the Victorian community of Murrumbeena raised over $75,000 for Cancer Council. Relay For Life is now run in every state and territory and raises over $14 million each year for the cancer fight.
Relay For Life is not just about the amazing experience on the day. It’s also about the fun ways your team can raise money in the lead up to the event. Cancer Council is not government funded. They need support to help reduce the impact cancer has on our communities.
You have a rare opportunity to walk around the Etihad Stadium oval while raising valuable funds for Cancer Council Victoria! Just join in the Docklands corporate Relay For Life event on 5 February 2014.
This 8 hour Relay event started in 2013 and we’re hoping our Docklands neighbours will join in for the 2014 Relay. In 2013 25 teams and over 410 registered participants from the Australian Taxation Office raised more than $89,000 for Cancer Council Victoria's cancer research, prevention and support programs.
In 2014 Docklands Relay For Life will bring together Relayers from businesses throughout the Docklands area! We are delighted that Docklands will be back for its second year! Our challenge is to make this a sustainable annual event in the Docklands corporate community.
