HOPE is the catch-cry of the Cancer Council’s Relay For Life as thousands of volunteers walk to raise money for cancer research around the country whilst remembering loved ones who have been touched by this disease.
This year’s South Gippsland event will once again take place at Terrill Park in Fish Creek, on the weekend of March 18 and 19.
This will be the last time Fish Creek hosts the relay, before it moves on to another town in South Gippsland next year.
To date, 81 walkers have registered in 16 teams.
Fundraising is well underway with more than $13,000 already raised towards the target of $40,000.
Early bird registration closes at midnight on Sunday, February 19; anyone who registers before then will pay $20, compared to the $25 it will cost to register after that date.
Some of the upcoming events include a Fun Run on Sunday, February 26 from the Fish Creek playground at 9.30am.
A High Tea will be held on Friday, March 3 from 2-5pm and movie buffs might like to see Beauty and the Beast at Stadium 4 on March 23 at a time to be confirmed.
