The challenge is for teams to register now, raise funds in the lead up to the event and take turns to keep their baton moving, whilst enjoying the sensational festive atmosphere created through entertainment, camping out and most importantly the vibrancy of the hundreds of lively people on the track! Relay is more than just a fundraiser, it really is a community engaging event that focuses on survivors and through some very defining ceremonies, empowers those who have been diagnosed with cancer but it also allows the community to grieve for those lost to cancer.
