Event Launch Doreen Relay For Life 2017   My name is Ayden Shaw and I am from the Doreen Cancer Council Victoria Relay For Life.I have just taken over as Community Liaison for this event and we are now the only Relay held throughout the City Of Whittlesea.

Relay For Life is a fun and moving overnight experience that raises vital funds for the Cancer Council’s research, prevention, information and support services. Relay is a chance for the Whittlesea community to recognise and celebrate local cancer survivors, patients and their carers, in addition to coming together as a united community.Everyone has and will be touched by cancer in their lifetime, what we try to do is not only educate the community on who is there to support them throughout their tough time, but also give a memorable and awesome overnight event.

Part of our event is trying to involve community partners and I am contacting you in regards to participating in our event this year. Teams of 10 or more continuously walk around a track for 18-24 hours, Relay is the largest cancer fundraiser in the world being held in over 30 countries and it is a lot of fun. We would love to know if you would like to be involved in the event and we have a number of ways that you can be involved whether it be registering a team, doing an activity at the event or partnering with us.I am a huge believer in using our events as an opportunity to promote your own groups and we are at Meadowglen Athletics Track. This year we have moved locations from Doreen to Epping in response to feedback that the community was wanting other areas in the City Of Whittlesea to be involved. Our event is being held on the 9th and 10th of September this year and I am attaching the link to register and look at our website below.

We also would encourage your members to register a team for the event.

I am also attaching an event flyer, if you support us we would be able to promote you as event supporter on the day and in the lead up continuing to promote the amazing work you do for the community. The link to register is We are on Facebook and Instagram and have over 1000 followers of our page.Sport Clubs and Community groups are integral to the community and if you are interested in participating, performing or have other general questions please let me know.General Event Flyer- Doreen
