LEAP AT BIG CHANCE TO AID CHARITY
IT’S been a hit on the Gold Coast for many years, and now the Cancer Council’s Relay for Life is kicking off at the Italo Australian Club this weekend.
The relay, started in 1985 by an American surgeon, raises more than $14 million in Australia each year, as well as millions more in the more than 20 countries involved.
Participants walk, skip and dance through the night to raise money for the Cancer Council, a charity which supports cancer patients around the world.
Already more than $22,000 has been raised by the Gold Coast event, with Community Fundraising Co-ordinator Jade Horrigan extremely excited to have a look at
how all the teams dress up for the “Fluoro Disco” theme.
“We’ve got activities happening throughout the event as well, scavenger-hunt-like challenges, as well as the entertainment line-up and there’ll be a number of food trucks on site as well,” she said.
“We’ve got a full schedule, the committee has been all over it making sure there’s plenty for everyone to do.
“It’s really just about getting down and participating, remembering it’s all about the cause and fundraising for Cancer Council.”
There’s nothing like taking time out of your day to help give back, and this time around you can do it alongside hundreds of people and with plenty of entertainment to keep you motivated.
You don’t have to be in a team to get involved, so hurry up and register to join in on the fun!
