The community in the Bundaberg Region is now able to register for the Bundaberg Relay For Life for free and take part online.
With the iconic event turning virtual for the first time in its history, the previous registration fees have been waived, and all locals are encouraged to sign up and remember, celebrate, and fight back against cancer.
The online event will be held on Saturday 8 August, streaming on Facebook from 3 – 7pm and will include the same beloved Relay For Life activities including the opening ceremony, celebrating survivors and carers, and candlelight ceremony.
The virtual Relay will be streamed onto the Bundaberg Relay For Life Facebook event listing, where all Relayers are invited to watch, interact, and fundraise to support those impacted by cancer.
Cancer Council Queensland CEO Ms Chris McMillan urged the community to register for the unmissable Bundaberg Relay For Life event.
“Relay For Life brings communities together to celebrate cancer survivorship, remember loved ones lost and empower teams of families, friends and colleagues to raise funds and fight back against cancer,” Ms McMillan said.
“Although this year’s event will look very different, the spirit of coming together for a good cause will connect us and create a very special virtual event.
“Every dollar raised through Relay For Life funds our work, and in turn, provides vital support and care for all Queenslanders every minute, every hour, every day.”
