Hawkes­bury Re­lay For Life

Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - Community News -

Hawkes­bury City Coun­cil is again proudly par­tic­i­pat­ing as an or­gan­i­sa­tion in Hawkes­bury Re­lay For Life to con­nect with the com­mu­nity, as well as sup­port Coun­cil staff and com­mu­nity mem­bers who have been af­fected by can­cer.

This is the fourth year that Coun­cil has en­tered a cor­po­rate team in Hawkes­bury Re­lay For Life, the Mayor of Hawkes­bury, Coun­cil­lor Mary Lyons-Buck­ett said.

“We had a great re­sult last year and it’s al­ways won­der­ful to see staff and their fam­ily mem­bers de­vote per­sonal time to this event,” she said.

Re­lay For Life is a fun and spe­cial overnight ex­pe­ri­ence that raises vi­tal funds for the Can­cer Coun­cil’s re­search, pre­ven­tion, in­for­ma­tion and sup­port ser­vices. It is also a chance for all of our Hawkes­bury com­mu­nity to recog­nise lo­cal can­cer sur­vivors, pa­tients and their car­ers. It is a pre­cious time to re­mem­ber loved ones lost to can­cer while rais­ing money to help save more lives.

Fundrais­ing is in full swing and the ac­tual event will be held from 9:30am on Satur­day, 22 Septem­ber 2018 un­til 9:30am on Sun­day, 23 Septem­ber 2018. To join or do­nate to Hawkes­bury Re­lay For Life, visit www.can­cer­coun­cil.org.au/re­lay­for­life/Events/IT0000599
