Relay thank you
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 cancerqld.org.au. — MS CHRIS MCMILLAN CEO, Cancer Council Queensland
