Abby Wallace, Community Relations Coordinator from Cancer Council NSW Northern Rivers says the dedicated organising committee have been busy planning a great event for the community! The new venue at Jabour Park is looking well-groomed and has recently undergone some renovations and it is in tip top shape ready for the Relay! Relay For Life is an overnight experience with entertainment, fun activities and moving ceremonies – it’s a night you won’t forget! “Most of the entertainment has been locked in and it will be a great showcase of local talent,” said Abby. “The ‘Miss Relay’ competition is also back again this year and we are calling on all the blokes to get their dresses and purses ready for a fun night with great prizes,” she said. All participants get a Relay For Life shirt, overnight camping and a free breakfast on Sunday at Relay included in the registration fee. The funds raised help Cancer Council NSW support all in the Clarence Valley affected by cancer through vital research, prevention, information and support services, so no one faces a cancer diagnosis alone.
