CURTIN Univer­sity stu­dents are en­cour­ag­ing the com­mu­nity to register a team in the Re­lay For Life Curtin

The event, to keep a ba­ton mov­ing in a re­lay style for 24 hours, aims to raise $100,000 for Can­cer Coun­cil WA.

Event chair Kr­is­han Shah said the event was or­gan­ised by stu­dents and re­cent grad­u­ates who vol­un­teered their time to put on the event.

“This is a great way for young minds to de­velop their pro­fes­sional skills as well as sup­port a wor­thy cause,” he said.

The stu­dents were re­cently pre­sented with four awards at the He­roes of Hope Awards hosted by Can­cer Coun­cil WA.

The com­mit­tee was pre­sented with the Com­mu­nity Spirit Award for best lo­cal com­mu­nity en­gage­ment; the Team Growth Award for the largest in­crease in vol­un­teer num­bers; the Most Im­proved Event Award for the most trans­formed event from the pre­vi­ous year; and the Youth Spirit Award, awarded to one team mem­ber un­der the age of 25 who has en­gaged their lo­cal com­mu­nity to the fullest.
