Rochester Relay For Life 2012
Relay for Life in aid of Cancer Research UK returns to Rochester this year on 7th July 2012 at Deangate Ridge, Hoo.
After last year’s phenomonally successful event which raised over £30,000 for this very worthy cause, organisers of this year’s event are hoping to go one better and now is the time to start organising your team. The event is open to all ages and is a great way to come together and support the fight against cancer. It’s also great fun with live music, workouts, displays, and all participants are able to camp overnight and enjoy the fantastic and unique atmosphere.
To register your interest and for more information, visit the event page on the Cancer Research UK website here.
In the meantime, here’s my video diary from last year’s 24 hour relay to get you in the mood:
About Relay For Life
Relay For Life brings you and your town together to help beat cancer.
Throughout the year, teams of 8 to 15 people get together and fundraise in their local communities to support the work of Cancer Research UK. Then everyone comes together in an inspiring overnight celebration and commemoration that the whole community can be part of.
On the day of Relay For Life Rochester you can expect a celebratory mix of music, games, entertainment, food, fundraising and perhaps a few surprises! Whilst the event is in full swing, members of each team will take turns to walk around the track for the duration of the Relay. All events are overnight as this marks the fact that cancer never sleeps.
Join us for Relay For Life Rochester and be part of something special. You can take part by starting a team and becoming the Team Captain, joining a team as a Team Member or by taking part as a Survivor.
Survivors’ Lap of Honour
Relay For Life Rochester will begin with the inspiring Survivors’ Lap of Honour. Cancer survivors will walk the first lap of the course, cheered and supported by the community. Together we celebrate life and the efforts we are all making to help beat cancer.
The closing ceremony
At the end of Relay For Life Rochester, everyone joins together for a final lap to celebrate their fundraising achievements and look back on an unforgettable experience.
