Congratulations to Surf Coast Secondary College for taking up the challenge to fight cancer through Relay For Life, a fun and moving experience that raises vital funds for 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.
