Thanks to our fantastic sponsors:
Relay For Life is a community event and it would not be possible without the support we receive from our community. In particular, there are local businesses that provide us with monetary and in-kind support.
Survivors and Carers
Relay For Life is a time for our community to come together and celebrate cancer survivors, remember those who are no longer with us and fight back against cancer.
If you or anyone you love has ever heard the words ‘you have cancer’, you know how much if affects us and the people around us. No one should face cancer alone, so whether you’re a Survivor or Carer, getting involved in your local Relay For Life can introduce you to others who are facing similar challenges and create opportunities for sharing stories, friendship and hope.
To honour your inspiring journey, you’re invited to be our Guest of Honour at Relay For Life.
You can choose to walk in the Survivor and Carer’s Lap of Honour or just come along for the celebrations.
We are currently finalising details for Survivors and Carers.
Parent or Guardian Consent
If you are under 18 years of age, you are required to have a parent or guardian complete a Parental Consent Form before the event. This form will be emailed to youth upon registering for the event. All youth are required to have the consent of their parent/guardian via the form above. Failure to do so will result in the youth being unable to attend the Relay For Life event.
There will be limited on the day registrations available.
Youth Team Supervisors
All participants under 18 years of age are required to have a supervisor over the age of 21 present with their team for the duration of the event. You must register your supervisor by completing the Youth Supervisor Form that is emailed to you upon registering as a youth. It is the responsibility of the parent, guardian, team captain or youth to ensure the youth supervisor has completed this form. If a youth team attends Relay For Life without the required number of supervisors over the age of 21, the team will not be able to participate. Please note that for youth teams, you must have 1 supervisor per 10 youth participants.
Our Local Impact
Wagga Wagga Relay For Life will be kick off on a Friday night to encourage participants to attend after work and it enables all to ‘get their Sunday back’.
Teams are encouraged to theme their outfits and tents and spread the message about cancer support in the community in a simple and social way. It’s a great morale building event for families, friends, clubs and work colleagues.?
