Funds Raised


Relay For Life is an inspirational and fun event for everyone of all fitness levels, during which we celebrate with survivors, remember loved one lost to cancer and come together as a community to fight back against cancer.  Teams set up their site and take turns relay style walking/running around a track for 12 hours while enjoying a carnival atmosphere of live music, entertainment, games, activities and fantastic community camaraderie.

Click on the ‘Register' button to get started with either a whole team registration or to join a team or register individually to make up your team.

Registration is $15 per team member. We strongly encourage teams of 10.

Registration includes:

  • 5m x 5m site
  • Candle bag per team member
  • Access to spot prizes throughout the event.

With no minimum size, teams are then encouraged to fundraise at least a minimum of $100 per person to enable the Cancer Society to continue providing our free services to the community. 

Whether you are a cancer survivor, a carer, supporter or simply wanting to make a difference, Relay For Life empowers everyone involved.

Any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch at or phone 03 379 5835.
