Re­lay thank you

Maroochy Weekly - - NEWS / OPINION -

I AM writ­ing to thank the Sun­shine Coast com­mu­nity for helping us fight back against cancer on the week­end (May 5-6).

Around 530 par­tic­i­pants in 59 teams walked through­out the night at Cancer Coun­cil Queens­land’s 2018 Sun­shine Coast Re­lay For Life to raise aware­ness and vi­tal funds for our work.

An in­cred­i­ble $59,300 was raised by teams who ral­lied to­gether to make a dif­fer­ence.

Com­mu­nity sup­port is in­stru­men­tal to our work and sig­nif­i­cantly re­duces the bur­den of cancer on the com­mu­nity.

Across the Sun­shine Coast re­gion around 3360 peo­ple are di­ag­nosed with cancer each year – Re­lay For Life en­ables us to reach out to them ev­ery minute, ev­ery hour, ev­ery day.

To the lo­cal Re­lay For Life com­mit­tee, vol­un­teers, par­tic­i­pants, spon­sors, and all who do­nated gen­er­ously – we ex­press our heart­felt thanks.

If you or a loved one needs sup­port fol­low­ing a cancer di­ag­no­sis, please call 13 11 20 or visit can­ — MS CHRIS MCMILLAN CEO, Cancer Coun­cil Queens­land
