On Saturday, 12 May 2012 I will be participating in the 2012 Cancer Council Relay For Life at Stockland Park, Kawana.
Relay For Life is an overnight, community event where teams of up to 15 people keep a baton moving in a relay-style walk over 18 hours to raise funds for the Cancer Council.
Many in the community will know that my mother is a Survivor of cancer and for years my family has proactively supported the Cancer Council in their fundraising.
YOU CAN HELP BEAT CANCER
I am participating in my mother’s team “The Mad Hatters” and we are seeking much needed donations.
Cancer Council is not government funded. We need your support to help to reduce the impact cancer has on our communities.
Every five minutes, another Australian is diagnosed with cancer. While survival rates are improving every day, cancer remains a leading cause of death. That’s why it’s so important that we raise funds to fight cancer.
Every dollar raised through Relay For Life helps the Cancer Council to:
• Investigate new ways to prevent, detect and treat cancers. $12 million is invested in research each year.
• Educate people in your community about ways they can reduce their cancer risk.
• Advocate for cancer control.
• Support people during their times of greatest need through financial assistance and free accommodation near treatment facilities in Rockhampton, Townsville and Brisbane.
Please consider sponsoring me for the relay. I thank everyone who sponsored me last year.
