The Relay for Life began in 1985 in the United States and has since been held in 21 countries worldwide, including Australia. This year a local Maroondah family will be organising a Relay for Life in Maroondah, which will be held on the 20th and 21st of November at Town Park Athletic Track in Croydon. The Relay for Life is held over the two days, where Cancer survivors, carers, family and friends participate in the event to raise funds for Cancer research and support.
This evening an information session was held at the Maroondah City Council, whereby a committee was formed to organise and oversee the event. While the Relay for Life is a community based event, Maroondah Council is providing assistance, ensuring that we are working in partnership to help raise funds and awareness for this cause.
I urge the Maroondah community to support this event, either through volunteering, raising funds or participating in the relay on the 20th and 21st of November at Town Park Athletic Track in Croydon,
