Re­lay for Life

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

ON BE­HALF of Can­cer Coun­cil Queens­land, thank you to the peo­ple of Bund­aberg for their sup­port of Bund­aberg Re­lay For Life at the week­end. The event was a tremen­dous suc­cess. More than $103,862 was raised by 93 teams and 1069 par­tic­i­pants who took to the track to help us fight back against can­cer. The fund­ing will go to­wards life-sav­ing re­search, pro­grams and sup­port for those af­fected. This in­cludes the around 1500 peo­ple in the Wide Bay Bur­nett who will be di­ag­nosed with can­cer this year. We take this op­por­tu­nity to ac­knowl­edge the tire­less en­thu­si­asm of the lo­cal Re­lay For Life Com­mit­tee, who vol­un­teer their time to cham­pion our cause for the com­mu­nity. Be­cause of Re­lay we are one step closer to a can­cer-free fu­ture. Thank you once again. Prof Jeff Dunn AO CEO Can­cer Coun­cil Queens­land
