Relay For Life Runs Its Course

New Zealand is in the midst of the 2008 series of Relay For Life events, eleven relays have already been run and there are three left to go.
The Relay for Life concept originated in America in 1985 when Dr Gordon Klatt ran 135km kilometres at his local track over 24 hours and raised $25000 for the American Cancer Society.
In 2008, teams of ten or more run at selected venues throughout New Zealand and keep the baton moving by walking or running for 24 hours money raised goes to the Cancer Society of New Zealand to fund cancer research.
The Wellington, Rotorua and Tauranga Relay for Life events will all take place overnight on March 29/30, Cancer Survivors who attend are honoured with a ‘Survivors Lap’.
