The most recent edition of this event was on 11 March 2017.
Relay For Life in Timaru is a fun overnight fundraising event for the Cancer Society that brings communities together to celebrate and remember the lives of those who have been affected by cancer.
Relay For Life begins with an Opening Ceremony, with cancer survivors and carers leading the first lap of the event. Next, team members take to the track to walk, jog or run. When they're not on the track, teams enjoy a festive, family-friendly environment with heaps of activities and entertainment. Later in the evening, a Candlelight Ceremony is held to remember loved ones affected by cancer. Team members continue to walk or jog until the teams come together for an inspiring Closing Ceremony.
