Relay For Life is a fun and moving overnight experience that raises vital funds for the Cancer Council’s research, prevention, information and support services.

Relay for Life was held at Bunbury Football Club, Payne Park on 4th November. Corporate First Aid Australia’s Jane Goff and Di Needham attended on a volunteer basis as first emergency responders. Our two highly experienced and capable nurses attended to multiple minor situations, including cuts and abrasions, and a whip injury from the tug of war activities.

The majority of blister injuries were from the many willing circuits around Payne Park that the Bunbury Relayers completed.

Relay is a chance for the Bunbury community to recognise and celebrate local cancer survivors, patients and their carers, to honour and remember loved ones lost to cancer and to raise money to help save more lives.

The Relay goal was set at 130,000 however the total exceeded expectations at $144,539.29. Relayers in Australia have earned over $108,000,000 over the past five years.
