Eight days to go for the next Relay for Life
THE countdown has begun. Teams are getting ready, tents are being organised, costumes are done and everybody is getting excited.
In eight days at 3pm, we will start 18 hours of walking.
By 9am the next morning, we will be tired, have sore feet and be looking forward to going home to bed but it will be with the feeling that we have done something wonderful.
We will have celebrated, remembered and pledged to fight back. There will have been tears for the ones we have lost, applause for the ones who have survived, some fun times had and there will be hope for a cancer-free future.
At the end of all this, we will be thinking can we do this again? The answer is “yes”, so we will return next year and do it all again.
Some of you will think we are crazy to do this but we know in our hearts that we have done something that might one day find a cure.
We also know that we have helped to provide other resources that give a cancer patient and their family peace of mind.
We call this dedication to something that we believe strongly about.
