Relay for Life kicks off at Griffith University

THIS weekend, more than 300 locals will lace up and take to the track at Griffith University’s Gold Coast Campus Relay for Life in an effort to grow hope for a cancer free future. 

Relay for Life is an 18 hour event involving teams of up to 15 people keeping a baton moving in a relay style walk or run overnight.

It helps to raise vital funds for the one in two Queenslanders diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.


The Cancer Council Queensland event kicks off at Griffith Uni’s Gold Coast Campus from 3pm on Saturday the 18th of October.

This opening ceremony is then followed by 18 hours of fun and festivities, before the event comes to an end at 9am Sunday the 19th of October.

34 teams will be competing, including survivors, carers, Cancer Council staff and volunteers.
