Relay for Life is a fantastic family and community event which raises vital funds for Cancer Research UK. It is now in its 6th year in Aylesbury and last year raised over £76,000, helping to ensure that Cancer Research UK continues its work to improve diagnosis, treatments and outcomes for cancer patients.
Relay for Life is a team event in which teams of friends, family and colleagues come together and fundraise in the months leading up to the Relay weekend. This year, Relay for Life Aylesbury will take place at the newly renovated Aylesbury Rugby Club in Weston Turville from midday Saturday 5th July to midday Sunday 6th July.
Teams come together for the 24-hour walking event, walking right through the night "because cancer never sleeps, so neither do we". As darkness falls on the Saturday night there is a very moving Candle of Hope ceremony where we take the time to celebrate the successes of those fighting the disease and remembering those we have loved and lost. The candles then light our path through the night until dawn rises.
The Relayers are entertained over the weekend with a vibrant mix of stalls, live bands, competitions and fancy dress laps which creates that carnival atmosphere which helps to make it such a special and memorable event.
Planning is underway for our 2014 event and our teams are already putting their thoughts to how they can raise more money than ever before. So why not be part of this brilliant community event and check out the website here. This shows you how you can get involved or text the Relay Mobile on 07851 719297, or call 01844 290362 and we will call you to talk to you about Relay for Life. Come and share this great experience with your friends and family as well as raising money for such a valuable charity.... Together we can beat cancer.
