Relay For Life is a chance for communities to recognise and celebrate those who have overcome cancer or are undergoing treatment, as well as the people who care for them.

Locally, more than $12,000 had been raised for Saturday's event by early May.

This community driven overnight fundraising event has teams camp out around a track and take turns walking or running to symbolize the fact that cancer never sleeps. Other events throughout the evening include the Survivor's Lap, the Caregiver's Lap and the Luminaria Ceremony.
