Relay For Life began in Australia in 1999 when the Victorian community of Murrumbeena raised over $75,000 for Cancer Council. Relays are now held in every Australian State and Territory, with more than 134,000 participants raising over $24 million each year. Every dollar raised goes towards funding Cancer Council’s vital research, prevention and support programs, many of which help people in your community every day.
Wallan Secondary College is proud to have had students participating in two teams (Guardian Angels and Walking Warriors) in this year’s Relay for Life.
To raise funds the Teams held a ‘Sausage Sizzle’ and an ‘Out of Uniform Day’ at the school. There has also been ‘Money for Music’ with students making a donation to vote for their favourite song to be played over the PA system during session changes.
Our congratulations to both teams who completed the relay on Saturday, a job well done. Special mention to Susan Langborne who also received two awards on the day for 'Spirit of Relay' and 'Best Campsite'.
