Newcastle/Lake Macquarie Relay For Life
An exciting new area called Fightback Alley has been added to the activities at this year's Newcastle/Lake Macquarie Relay For Life, to be held once again at the Hunter Sports Centre at Glendale on 2-3 November.
Relay For Life is a fun family event where teams of 10-15 participate in a relay-style walk or run to raise funds for the Cancer Council. This event brings the whole community together for a night of fun, entertainment, celebration and remembrance.
With the aim of promoting healthy living in a friendly and interactive environment, Fightback Alley will feature stalls from local companies and organisations providing key health messages to the community. Participants can collect stamps in a 'Health Passport' by completing activities at selected stalls in Fightback Alley. Participants who collect all their Health Passport stamps can enter into a draw to win prizes.
There will also be live entertainment on stage throughout the day as well as games, activities, fitness classes, food stalks and a fireworks display at night time. There is also a Midnight 5k running event on the world class Hunter Sports Centre track.
