We are only a couple of weeks away from this year’s annual Rochester Relay For Life which is again being held at Deangate Ridge near Hoo over the weekend of 7th/8th July. Relay For Life is an inspirational overnight event which honours cancer survivors and celebrates life.

This year’s event will be something of a family affair for me personally with both my wife and my son raising funds as part of Team Taggs. Due to the fact that I’m built for comfort rather than speed, ahem, I shall be taking the reins once again on the mixing decks, providing the soundtrack for the weekend and compering the event.

I’d really appreciate it if you could take a few moments to show your support for the fight against cancer by sponsoring either Tracy or Glenn. Together we can beat cancer!

Rochester Relay for Life 2011What is Relay For Life?

Relay For Life brings you and your town together to help beat cancer.

Throughout the year, teams 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.

Relay events focus on fun for all the family, regardless of age or fitness level – everyone is welcome!

Get involved

You can take part in your local Relay event as a Team Captain, a Team Memberor Survivor. If you want to start a team, you’ll need  to become a Team Captain or ask someone you know to become one and then join their team as a Team Member.

Team Captains must be 18 or over and are responsible for registering for an event. They then let their friends and family know the team name and ask them to join them as Team members. You can join a team via their online fundraising page. Search for a team.

Survivors are our guests of honour. All you need to do is sign up as a survivor forthe event of your choice and attend on the day. Simple!
