“Over the last 15 years, The Hills Relay has raised more than $3.5 million for research into cures for cancers of the liver, pancreas and stomach to name a few, as well as funding for crisis care, palliative care and many other important projects,” Ms Pike said.
“Apart from the money raised, the Hills Relay is just a wonderful event to be a part of. The vibe created by the thousands of participants in colourful costumes can’t be matched.”
“We want more individuals and teams to sign up so round up your friends, family or colleagues and be a part of the 2016 Hills Relay for Life,” Mayor Byrne said.
