Fellas frocking up for 2018 fundraiser
WOMANLESS Fashions on the Field and hobby horse racing are among activities in store for the Roma Relay for Life on Saturday , with residents encouraged to take part in the event.
While teams of school students, families and community groups will take turns walking around Cities’ oval as a symbol of the ongoing fight against cancer, simultaneous fun and games will engage locals in an attempt to raise funds and awareness.
This years theme is Spring Carnival: Racing for a Cure, and organisers hope to have fun in the name of a good cause.
While this year’s event will be shorter than usual, it’s hoped more students, families and young children become involved, with local students leading the charge.
“It’s something to do to support our local community,” Year 12 student Abbie Just said.
“We got involved because we all know someone who has had cancer,” she said.
Organiser Annette Huntley hopes this will draw more numbers than in previous years.
“It’s a bit of fun for the kids to get involved in, and it’s for a good cause,” Ms Huntley said.
“Roma has been doing Relay for Life for as long as the fundraiser has been around.”
FASHION FORWARD: Year 12 students Tom See, Aiden McGuane and Ned Clem are donning dresses for a good cause. They will be part of the ‘womanless fashions on the field’.
