Relay For Life brings people from all walks of life together for a common cause. It begins with an Opening Ceremony, with cancer survivors and carers leading the first lap of the event. Next, team members take to the track. Most walk, while some prefer to jog or run. Team members take turns walking or running around a track while enjoying a carnival atmosphere of music, entertainment and community spirit.
Everyone and anyone can get involved, so gather your friends, whanau and workmates and get your team together today! During the candle light ceremony, personally-inscribed candle bags are placed around the track, and their light emits a warm glow throughout Relay venue. Team members continue to walk or jog until the teams come together for an inspiring Closing Ceremony. Relay For Life is a fun event with every team bringing its own special energy by creating campsites and enjoying the entertainment and each other’s company. Worldwide, more than five million people take part in a Relay For Life event every year.
