An Unforgettable Experience
Newcastle Relay For Life isn’t just about fundraising; it’s a celebration of life and a tribute to those who have battled cancer. The event offers a wide array of activities and attractions for the whole family to enjoy. From live entertainment to vibrant markets, delicious food stalls, and engaging kids’ activities, there’s something for everyone.
Honouring Survivors and Carers
The heart of every Relay For Life event is the survivors of cancer and their dedicated carers. The event begins with a special lap around the track in their honor. Throughout the event, participants can enjoy local performers, explore market stalls, participate in competitions, and engage in family-friendly games.
Remembering Those We’ve Lost
As the sun sets, a poignant candlelight ceremony lights up the darkness in memory of those we’ve lost to cancer. Inspiring speakers will share their stories and provide updates on the critical work of Cancer Council NSW, offering hope for a cancer-free future.
Closing Ceremony and Motivation
To conclude this impactful event, a closing ceremony will celebrate the incredible achievements of participants and motivate them to continue the fight against cancer. Every step taken and every dollar raised makes a significant difference.
