Relay for Life
Saturday, 16th Jul 2016,
Cancer Research UK’s Relay For Life is part of the world’s largest movement to end cancer. If you’re looking to make the greatest impact to save lives from cancer, this is the most powerful event you will ever participate in. Relay is an inspiring, one-of-a-kind experience that unites people in a community to finish the fight against every kind of cancer. Money and awareness raised from Relay For Life help people facing cancer today. Cancer Research UK save lives by funding ground breaking research to discover cancer’s causes and cures and help people facing cancer today. We are the only charity fighting all 200 cancers.

Although it sounds like a running event, Relay For Life is actually a walk, and anyone can participate. People form teams and raise money together leading up to the event. Then, everyone comes together for a night of fun that celebrates cancer survivors, remembers loved ones lost to cancer, and unites us in our commitment to fight back against the disease. Relay is traditionally an overnight event that is symbolic of the fact that cancer never rests, so neither do we. There is food, activities, and entertainment to keep participants going the entire time! That’s Relay in a nutshell! We’re always looking for people like you to get involved. Can we count on you this year to join us to help finish the fight?

Your local Relay For Life event in South East London will take place on 16th & 17th July at Alexandra Junior School in Bromley!
