Governor to open Relay for Life

STATE governor Kate Warner will officially open the second Derwent Valley Relay for Life at Tynwald Park in New Norfolk this weekend. Professor Warner will also participate in a lap of the relay after the "survivors and carers".

The Relay for Life will start at 2pm this Saturday and continue until 10am on Sunday. There are presently 269 participants registered in 19 teams and more than half of the $30,000 fundraising target has already been raised.

The Relay For Life raises funds for the Cancer Council’s research, prevention, information and support services. Now in its second year, the New Norfolk event is a chance for the local community to recognise and celebrate local cancer survivors, patients and their carers, to honour and remember loved ones lost to cancer and to raise money to help save more lives.
