Join in cancer fight at rally

PASSIONATE community members of the Richmond Valley are being asked to volunteer and be part of the 2015 Relay for Life organising committee.

The Casino Relay for Life will be held on Saturday and Sunday, March 28-29 next year at Queen Elizabeth Park, Casino, and teams are encouraged to register early.

Cancer Council NSW community relations co-ordinator for Northern Region, Abby Wallace, said Relay for Life was an overnight, team fundraising event that brought local communities together in the fight against cancer and to honour cancer survivors and their carers.

"The committee are specifically looking for a sponsorship and fundraising co-ordinator and media and marketing co-ordinator but there are plenty of other roles available," she said.

"There are roles available for anyone who would like to be involved; we're looking for people with a variety of skills - the one common denominator being enthusiasm.

"We have a chance to create something special for the many local people diagnosed with cancer each year."

Committee meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month at 6pm at the Casino RSM Club.

Anyone interested in being on the 2015 organising committee can come along or contact Abby Wallace for details on 6639 1308.

Relay for Life is a wonderful opportunity to reach out to those in the community living with cancer.

Registrations are now open to enter a team at relay.cancercouncil.com.au/
