Welcome to Darwin Relay For Life 2018!

Welcome! 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 Darwin community to recognise and celebrate local cancer survivors, patients and their carers, to honour and remember loved ones lost to cancer and to raise money to help save more lives.

Join the thousands of Australians who take part in Cancer Council’s Relay For Life each year in the fight against cancer: start or join a team in the Relay For Life Darwin 2018 Relay today!

This years' theme is RETRO REVIVAL! Think: Rydell High pep-rally, pony-tails & pom-poms, short-shorts & long socks, pleated skirts & sand-shoes, headbands & BIG SMILES!

 Theme: retro Revival

One Day, One Night, One Community, One Fight. All funds raised in the Territiory, stay in the Territory. 

Hope lives in Relay for Life
