There’s still time to register for the Cancer Council’s Ballina Shire Relay for Life at Kingsford Smith Park this coming Saturday and Sunday.

Costumed characters Sid Seagull, Mandarin Man and Sam Squirrel have called it quits – they are relayed out! But there will be plenty of others to get acquainted with.

To date, more than 64 teams and more than 600 people have registered in the relay to raise money and awareness for Cancer Council NSW.

Relay For Life is where teams of between 10 and 15 people take turns to walk around a local track celebrating our local cancer survivors and carers, remembering those we have lost and pledging to fight back against cancer.

You can still register on the day at the Relay For Life administration area at Kingsford Smith Park, Ballina or go to www.relay.cancercouncil.com.au.

For more information on Relay For Life contact Kim Vincent, Relay For Life chair, on 0401 340 496.
