Survivors and Carers

Register for the Survivors and Carers lap at your local Relay

Relay For Life is a celebration of cancer survivorship, sending a message of hope that  people do survive cancer.

We come together each year in over 200 community Relay For Life events around Australia to celebrate cancer Survivors and their Carers. 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.


What is the Survivors and Carers lap all about?
The first lap of Relay honours cancer Survivors and Carers who take to the track, proudly wearing coloured sashes. All participants gather around the track to applaud the courage and strength shown by those completing the lap. With motivation levels high, all participants walk the second lap together.

Who can take part?
All cancer Survivors and Carers are welcome to take part in the walk, whether they are part of a team or not. Survivors are those who are now cancer-free or those who are currently undergoing treatment. Carers include those walking with the person they care for and those walking in honour of a loved one lost.
