Bern\’s family recently (end of May) lost their dad to cancer. He battled for 2 1/2 years. Due to this close encounter with Cancer (and the fact that Bern\’s mum, Marie is a breast cancer survivor), they have decided to join forces as a team for the Cancer Council\’s fundraising initiative Relay for Life.
What is Relay For life?
Relay For Life is an overnight team event to raise funds for cancer research, education and patient support programs.
How does it work?
The challenge is for teams of 10 or more to complete a relay-style walk or run at selected venues throughout Australia – in our case the team is running at Morrison Reserve, Mount Evelyn. Team members take turns to keep their baton moving overnight, enjoying the sensational festive atmosphere created through entertainment, camping, spot prizes and, most importantly, the vibrancy of the hundreds of lively people on the track!
Prior to the event – each team member is encouraged to raise much-needed funds to go towards research, education and patient support programs. If you are interested in supporting this worthwhile cause, you can go to the Relay for Life website and search for Windmill Warriors or click on this link http://tinyurl.com/6evzsp
Wish us well with our fundraising efforts and for the walk itself!
