Beaconhills College 2022

Welcome!

Beaconhills College will be hosting two simultaneous Relay for Life events at the Pakenham and Berwick campuses for the Beaconhills College community.

All Beaconhills students, staff, parents, alumni and the wider Beaconhills community are invited to take part, including extended family members and friends.

Relay For Life is a fun and moving experience that raises vital funds for the Cancer Council’s research, prevention and support services.

Relay is a chance for the community to recognise and celebrate local cancer survivors, those going through a cancer experience and their carers, to honour and remember loved ones lost and to raise money to help save more lives.

Join the thousands of Australians who take part in Cancer Council’s Relay For Life each year and make strides towards a cancer free future. Start or join a team in the 2022 Beaconhills College Relay today!
