AND THEY’RE OFF: Pictured is the start of last year’s Relay for Life in Ballina. It’s on again this year.

THE Ballina Shire Relay for Life is on again in October, and now is the time to get your team together.

The fundraising and awareness event for The Cancer Council will be held on October 27-28 at Kingsford Smith Park.

The Ballina Shire Relay for Life teams are made up of family and friends who support Relay For Life because so many are affected by cancer.

"The majority of people involved in Relay for Life have had a close connection to the cancer cause," Relay for Life chair Kim Vincent said.

"Relay for Life provides a wonderful opportunity to remember those we have lost to cancer and it's also an occasion to celebrate life and survivorship."

Survivors and carers also are honoured during the event.

Relay for Life is an overnight, family-friendly event.

Teams of 10 to 15 people organise fundraisers and sponsorship in the lead-up to the event.

All funds raised from Ballina Shire Relay for Life go directly towards The Cancer Council's research, education and support programs. To register a team, call Sandra on 6627 0305 or visit relayforlife.com.au/nsw.
