The Build Up
Teams are formed, fundraising events take place, fancy dress costumes are made… Are you ready to Relay?!
On The Day
Every Relay For Life begins with the inspiring Survivors’ Lap of Honour. Cancer survivors walk the first lap, cheered and supported by the community. Teams are then introduced to show their fancy dress costumes and cancer awareness banners.
Live bands, it’s a knockout competition, games, food, fundraising and maybe a few surprises.

At the end of the Relay, everyone joins together for a final lap to celebrate their fundraising achievements and look back on an unforgettable Relay For Life.
After a few months of counting all the pennies, we come together again, celebrating the amazing Relay For Life and announcing the incredible sum of money you have all raised.
