Cancer Council NSW and Gosford Relay for Life members are calling on the community to participate in 2017’s Relay for Life scheduled for March.
Gosford City Relay for Life is an 18-hour fundraising event where participants walk all night in relays to raise money to support local cancer patients and services. This event is held at Adcock Park Velodrome, West Gosford. It boasts a line-up of local entertainment as the participants walk around the track, as well as delicious food options and kids’ entertainment, including a Box Car Rally Lap, where children can create their own box cars to race. Chairperson of the Gosford City Relay for Life and cancer survivor, Ms Donna Robertson, said the relay provides something for everyone touched by cancer.
“People relay for all different reasons. “Whether you are a cancer survivor like myself, or a carer, if you are still fighting cancer or want to remember someone who lost their battle, or even if you just want to make a difference, the relay gives you that chance,” Ms Robertson said. “For me, to work alongside inspiring volunteers, the teams and participants that come out to this event, I feel lucky. “It is such an amazing feeling to see the community come together to make a real difference in the fi ght against cancer. “It gives me goose bumps,,” Ms Robertson added. “Cancer Council NSW representative, Ms Jayne Moloney, said Ms Robertson was a passionate ambassador, who works tirelessly to create the event.
