Relay For Life brings the town together to help beat cancer sooner.
Teams of 8-15 people get together and fund raise in their local communities to support the work of Cancer Research UK. Then everyone comes together in an inspiring overnight celebration and commemoration that the whole community can be part of.
Starting at 12 noon, the relay is a 24 hour stint!
On the day of the Relay, you can expect a celebratory mix of music, games, entertainment, food, fundraising and perhaps a few surprises! Whilst the event is in full swing, members of each team will take turns to walk around the track to show that cancer never sleeps.
The relay will begin with the inspiring Survivors' Lap of Honour. Cancer survivors will walk the first lap of the course, cheered and supported by the community. Together we celebrate life and the efforts we are all making to help beat cancer sooner.
As the evening draws in, everyone gathers to light candles of hope and pay tribute to those whose lives have been affected by cancer. Bags are decorated and lit up by a glowing candle so that poignant messages of remembrance and celebration line the track to create a moving and unforgettable moment.
At the end of the relay, everyone joins together for a final lap to celebrate their fundraising achievements and look back on an unforgettable experience.
