WITH just over a week to go till the Lismore Relay for Life organisers are hoping to exceed 100 teams and more than 750 participants in the popular annual cancer fundraiser.

Currently the 87 teams who have registered have raised almost half of the $80,000 target they hope to achieve.

Organiser Rhian Paton-Kelly said two information sessions will be held before the event for teams wanting to register.

The information sessions will be held on next Monday at Southern Cross University and Thursday at the Lismore Workers Club from 6.30pm.

Participants can enrol online to participate in the event which kicks off at the Southern Cross University sports field at 2pm on Saturday.
