Well boys and girls we are hosting our annual Relay for life.  Relay for life is our biggest and most popular event which we hold every year and if you take part this year you will understand why :)  Relay for life is an event which is based around fundraising and teamwork to keep a team member or a few on the track at all times, similar to a tag team event which different intervals and mini surprises along the way to keep all those sleep heads wide awake.  One aspect of the relay is the Candle of Hope ceremony where people have the opportunity to buy a candle bag and write a personal message for someone who they know who has suffered from this horrible disease. It is a beautiful opportunity for all individuals to come together and know that they are not alone in struggling and fighting against this disease, finding comfort in seeing first hand that others go through this too and they are not alone. You can register for the relay and you can buy a candle bag from us on the 22nd of February and the 1st of March in the library from some of our committee members! The Relay itself will take place on the 27th of March outside the John Hume building and really the bigger your team the better the experience! Everyone is welcome and if you wish to register a team (as big or little as you wish) just message the cancer soc page and we will register you for the event. Hope to see you all there and congratulations if you made it to the end of this post.
