Re­lay suc­cess

Chinchilla News - - OPINION -

THANK you to the lo­cal com­mu­nity for sup­port­ing the 2014 Chin­chilla Re­lay for Life. So far we have raised al­most $40,000 to go to­wards re­search and sup­port of all cancer sufferers. A spe­cial thank you to the 100 sur­vivors and car­ers who opened the event for us and were not de­terred by the threat of rain. Lorna and her ded­i­cated group of Cancer Coun­cil ladies did a mag­nif­i­cent job hon­our­ing them at the sur­vivors/car­ers af­ter­noon tea. En­ter­tain­ment co-or­di­na­tor Trudi Web­ster is to be con­grat­u­lated for keep­ing ev­ery­one awake and en­thused with an ar­ray of ac­tiv­i­ties and we thank all the com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions that gave their time to show­case their tal­ents. Con­grat­u­la­tions also to those teams that dec­o­rated their sites so well and par­tic­i­pated in the themed laps with enthusiasm. We would have loved to have given prizes to ev­ery sin­gle team as ev­ery­one added to the spirit of the event. Com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions such as Bull­dog Park, SES, Apex, WDRC and Ro­tary’s con­tri­bu­tions as well as many lo­cal businesses can­not be un­der­stated. We thank them for their sup­port. With only six months no­tice the hard­work­ing Chin­chilla Re­lay for Life Com­mit­tee man­aged to pull this event to­gether work­ing around a very busy lo­cal com­mu­nity sched­ule. Plans are afoot next year to move the event to ear­lier in the year and into warmer weather. We in­vite you to join us at the Chin­chilla Re­lay for Life in 2015. Ch­eryl Hen­ningsen
