What is Relay For Life?
Cancer Council Relay For Life is a unique overnight fundraising event that brings communities together in the fight against cancer.
This team event celebrates survival, honours those lost to cancer and offers hope for a cancer-free future.
Watch the video below to find out more.
Since the first WA event in 2001, Relay For Life has raised over $14 million to support the work of Cancer Council WA.
Experience the magic of Relay by registering your own team and take the first steps towards making a real difference in the lives of those touched by cancer. Or, find out how you can help by volunteering your time.
