Calling all local relayers

Calling all local relayers Image

By Cris Lumley, community event organiser

Now is your chance to lead the fight against cancer by rallying friends, family and workmates together to form a team for Cancer Council Victoria’s Relay For Life.

Cancer Council Victoria urges Docklands workers and residents to show support for locals who will be diagnosed with cancer this year by registering in the upcoming Docklands Relay For Life event, on Tuesday, September 13 from 11am to 7pm at Etihad Stadium.

In our first three Docklands Relays we have raised over $270,000 to help Cancer Council Victoria to fund research, implement prevention programs and provide support services for those affected by cancer.

We‘re relaying for people like little Freddie Higgs (pictured), the son of a Docklands worker and Docklands relay team member.

Freddie is four years old and, when he was 12 months old, he was diagnosed with a rare form of kidney cancer that doesn’t respond to chemotherapy or radiation.

Freddie is currently blessed with good health, is growing like a mushroom and has a ferocious appetite. He can knock off four Weetbix and four pieces of toast for breakfast without even trying. This is because he’s in training to join the MFB’s kinder program. 

This is why we relay. It’s to support kids like Freddie and to do our bit to cure cancer and ensure he’s got a bright future.

To join the Docklands Relay For Life event, you can form a team or join a team, offer to volunteer or contribute to fundraising activities.

When you register for the Docklands relay you will go into the draw to win a one-night stay at Peppers Docklands.

Check our Docklands Relay For Life event website at http://fundraising.cancer.org.au/site/TR?fr_id=2786&pg=entry to register and our Docklands-Relay-for-Life Facebook page.

For more information contact Donna Ross on 0421 616 034. For general information about Relay For Life please phone 1300 656 585 or visit http://www.relayforlife.org.au
