Stories from the Relays
"The sense of community in regional areas is strong, but it can be hard to feel the same in the suburbs. Through Relay you can bring the community together for one reason."
"Everything happens for a reason. Cancer has made me stronger and more determined to fight back."
"To see the community come together is the best part of Relay. That, and the knowledge that we are truly making a difference in the world."
James G's story
"I soon learnt that Relay was much more than a fundraiser… Relay is about my community."
"It’s good to belong to a group doing something positive for the local and larger community."
"I would strongly encourage other diverse communities to join this worthwhile fundraising endeavour to Relay and raise money for cancer research, prevention and support services."
"Relay means celebrating the survivors, remembering our loved ones who have passed and hoping that one day we will find a cure to this horrible disease."
"Being on the Committee has allowed me to learn new leadership skills and also gain lots of confidence. I have loved every single minute of it."
"I am passionate about what I believe in. I believe in a cancer-free future. I believe we will win."
"Relay For Life has made a huge difference in my life."
"To me, Relay For Life is the means by which we will find a cure."
"Something happened on the track that day! The love, warmth, acceptance… Relay gave me peace!"
"Join in. Relay. Fight back. Save a life. It might be yours."
"I Relay to say thanks for the support."
"I am one of the lucky ones. I’m a Survivor. Relay is my way of helping to create a cancer-free future."
"Relay For Life has had a significant impact on my life... After three Relays I had made friends for life."
"Every step and every dollar raised gives hope to someone fighting cancer."
James B's story
"I know the wonderful power that every Relay has to change the lives of cancer patients and their families."
"My goal has always been to provide hope and to inspire others."
