Locals gear up for Gold Coast Relay For Life this weekend

Around 400 Gold Coasters will take to the track this weekend to help give hope to all Queenslanders affected by cancer.

The Gold Coast Relay For Life will kick off at Doug Jennings Park, The Spit, at 2pm on Saturday, with teams set to relay for 18 hours straight.

There will be a bunch of fun and festivities throughout the night before the event comes to a close at 8am on Sunday.


Cancer Council Queensland CEO Chris McMillan extended a special invite to the community to attend..

“It’s going to be a great weekend as the community walks to give hope for cancer survivors, hope for better treatments and hope for a cancer free future,” Ms McMillan said.

“Taking part in Relay is a great way for ordinary people to do extraordinary things in the fight against cancer.”

All funds raised support Cancer Council Queensland’s vital work in cancer research, education and patient support programs.

Local cancer survivors and carers who wish to take part in the survivors and carers lap and attend the free afternoon tea afterwards, are invited to arrive from 12pm for registration.
