At Cancer Council we believe it’s so important to show you just how vital Relay For Life is in our mission to prevent cancer, empower patients and save lives. As a community-funded organisation, we rely on the generosity of thousands of donors, fundraisers and volunteers to fund our much-needed research and programs.
Though some cancer statistics can be confronting - more than 31,600 Victorians are diagnosed each year - five-year survival rates are now at 67%. This is the highest they have ever been - just two decades ago this figure was 48%. This increase is largely due to breakthroughs in cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment, that can only happen because of people like Relayers.
You, our supporter, have made a real difference to thousands to thousands of Victorian lives. Here's a bit more information about how you are helping us:
*Donations of $2 or more are tax-deductible. Funds are used to support programs including, but not restricted to, the ones described here.
Every Relay For Life begins with an Opening Lap to celebrate and support cancer Survivors and their Carers. All Survivors and Carers are welcome to join in—you don't even need to be part of a team. We hope you can join us.Register for the Survivors and Carers lap
