Bunbury is ready to Relay For Life once more

Payne Park will turn purple this weekend for Bunbury’s annual Relay For Life. 

Every year, Relay For Life Bunbury-Southwest features hundreds of participants joining in a 24 hour relay in support of Cancer Council research into a cure. 

Currently more than 650 participants have registered for the 2017 edition with the total raised across the events history significantly more than $3 million. 

The event begins at 11am on Saturday with an opening ceremony followed by the first lap of the oval undertaken by cancer survivors and their carers. 

Survivors and carers are then invited to a free morning tea. To receive your invite, please email relaybunbury@gmail.com

At 8pm, there will be a candlelight ceremony to remember those who have lost their journey with cancer. 

Participants will be given the chance to light a candle or present an offering for a lost loved one. 

The event promises to deliver all the usual fun with plenty of activities to keep teams occupied while they take a break from the track. 

Included on the program is tug of war, the egg and baton race, laser tag, a human wheelbarrow race and a show by Deb ‘Spoons’ Perry.
