The annual Cancer Council Queensland fundraising event Relay For Life is only one week away!
Over 1000 locals will Relay with loved ones, friends, and work mates at JCU's Joe Baker Field from 2pm Saturday September 15.
Participants have been fundraising throughout the year and have just cracked the $100,000 mark- congratulations!!
With thousands still expected to be banked, we can't wait to see the final amount.
The community favourite event will host hours of entertainment while Relayers make their way around the track.
Organisers are encouraging the public to visit the event, especially for the Candlelight Ceremony.
The emotional ceremony begins at 7pm and will be a time of remembering those we have lost to cancer, and is your chance to write a heartfelt message on a candle bag.
Participants will be looking colourful on the day, with the theme 'What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?
