Matamata Chronicle - - News - By KA­T­RINA LINTONBON

Ti­rau Re­lay for Life team cap­tain Ebony Curtin and her crew of Soul Sis­ters will be tak­ing part in this week­end’s Re­lay for Life event in Hamil­ton to raise money for the Cancer So­ci­ety.

Af­ter at­tend­ing Re­lay for Life last year, Ms Curtin was so in­spired she de­cided to get some of her fam­ily and friends to­gether to form a team.

‘‘We have a cancer sur­vivor in our team. I don’t think there is any­one on this Earth that can say they don’t know some­one who hasn’t been af­fected by cancer,’’ Ms Curtin said.

The Soul Sis­ters have been train­ing and fundrais­ing since Oc­to­ber last year and have al­ready raised $3500.

Ms Curtin said they hope to raf­fle a quilt given the name Jour­ney of Hope at Re­lay for Life as well.

Raf­fle tick­ets can be bought on the day.

‘‘So many lo­cal busi­nesses and peo­ple have sup­ported us and we can’t even be­gin to thank them for ev­ery­thing.’’

‘‘Our tar­get is $5000 and I’m con­fi­dent we will get there.’’

For the cause: The Soul Sis­ters from Ti­rau will take part in the Re­lay for Life event in Hamil­ton and will raf­fle a quilt given the name Jour­ney of Hope.
