Counting down to the relay

THE third Derwent Valley Relay for Life will be held at Tynwald Park in New Norfolk this weekend. The event will start at 2pm on Saturday and continue until the closing ceremony at 10am on Sunday. 

There are presently 210 participants registered in 22 teams and more than half of the $40,000 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 third 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.

To find out more about the Derwent Valley 2017 Relay for Life contact Katrina Foxton on 6169 1902 or email relayforlife@cancertas.org.au. Alternatively find out more and donate here.

There is still time to register a team or sign up as a team member. Online registrations have now closed but there will be an opportunity to sign up on the day from 11am at the Cancer Council of Tasmania's tent.
