ON BEHALF of Cancer Council Queensland, thank you to the people of Whitsundays for their support of Relay For Life at the weekend.
The event was a tremendous success.
More than $19,700 was raised by 18 teams and 190 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 around 600 people in the Mackay region 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
