Relay heroes ready to run

A TEAM of super heroes will descend on Coffs Harbour next month – all for a good cause.

The Crusaders, decked out in superhero costumes, will join forces with thousands of others at the Coffs Coast Sport and Leisure Park for the 2010 Cancer Council Relay for Life.

Led by last year’s top fundraiser, Nicki Blewitt, the Crusaders are looking forward to raising awareness of cancer.

“A lot of people involved are people who have been in contact with cancer,” Mrs Blewitt said.

And Mrs Blewitt is no different.

In October 2006 her young son Christian was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Thankfully he is well now.

“It is really a fun event,” she said.

Relay For Life is a community fundraising event that involves teams of 10 to 15 people taking turns at walking or running around the Coffs Coast Sport and Leisure Park for 24 hours. It involves the whole community and is not promoted as a sporting or endurance event.

So get together your friends and family and register your team today for the Relay For Life on Saturday May 29 to Sunday May 30.

You can register online at www.relay.cancercouncil.com.au or contact Fiona Foulkes at Cancer Council on 6659 8402.

Registration costs $15 per person and includes a special Relay For Life T-shirt.
