Runners and walkers drawn to the Cancer Council's 2017 Relay For Life

Bunbury runners and walkers have taken part in 2017's Cancer Council's Relay For Life. 

Runners donned an array of colours and outfits at PC Payne Park on Saturday, November 4 and Sunday, November 5. 

The event began at 11am on Saturday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and survivors’ walk around the oval. 

Stalls, food trucks and musical acts also caught the crowd’s eye. 

Participants were brought together by speeches from Lara Hebbend and Leah Rando-Poller at the beginning of the event. 

Bunbury representatives including Member for Forrest Nola Marino and Member for Bunbury Don Punch were in attendance. 

The event raises funds for the Cancer Council’s research, prevention and support services initiatives. 

The relay also provides Bunbury citizens with a chance to acknowledge cancer patients, survivors and careers in the community.
