Relay for Life
Relay For Life is a unique overnight event where teams of 10 to 20 friends, families or colleagues challenge themselves to take turns to keep a baton moving in a Relay style walk or run overnight. There are no age limitations or fitness requirements, Relay For Life is suitable for everyone and anyone can join in on the fun!
Stay for the whole event, camp overnight, or just visit and enjoy the entertainment, prizes and ceremonies that make Relay For Life so inspirational.
Each person on the team pays a registration fee which helps to cover the cost of the event. Team members are then encouraged to fundraise a minimum of $100 per person before the weekend of Relay For Life.
Whether you are a cancer survivor, a carer, supporting friends or loved ones, or simply wanting to make a difference, Relay For Life empowers everyone who participates.
One in three New Zealanders will be affected by cancer in their lifetime.
The Cancer Society provides free support services and information for people going through cancer treatment. We also fund important scientific cancer research and implement health promotion initiatives to reduce cancer for future generations. We receive no direct government funding and rely on the generosity of New Zealanders to provide these services.
We have twelve staff who are participating in this event as a team “Bastastics” and we would love for you to support us by donating. Click here to view the team.

Thanks to everyone who came along and participated or supported us during the day and into the night. And of course, for all of the fundraising efforts – we’ve raised $5,562.05 so far and that’s a pretty darn good effort!
Below are some pictures from the candle lighting at 9pm with everyone on the track and a few of our team walking, Adrian in his project runway costume on stage and of course a picture of the last lap – Nisha, Donna & I walked that last lap with all the teams.
The North Shore chapter raised $155,000 for the weekend overall – two of the schools who participated raised over $20,000 each! I’m pretty sure that they had way longer to raise funds than us 🙂
Also a special thank you to Bruce for lining up at midnight and being first in the queue to get our bacon & egg butties – YUM!!!
