2011 Relay for Life (Rochester) event - still time to get involved!

People of all ages will be taking part in this year’s Relay for Life (Rochester) event, in aid of Cancer Research, on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 July.

I’ll be joining one of fifteen teams helping to raise funds for the life-saving work of Cancer Research UK.

The team I’m part of is to be known as ‘Hoo R Ya’, captained by local Hoo resident Nancy Waller.

Team members will take turns to walk, run, skip or crawl* around the running track at Deangate Ridge, with each team having someone on the track for 24 hours. And there'll be a great overnight party, with camping, music, stalls, entertainment and BBQs, to ensure a superb atmosphere.

(*for the very young or those feeling very old!)

If you’d like to sponsor the ‘Hoo R Ya’ team, take a look at our team fundraising page by clicking here.

This relay will take place at the Deangate Ridge Sports Complex, Dux Court Road, Hoo, Rochester, Kent, ME3 8RZ.

There’s still time to take part and register a team, so if you’d like to find out more, contact Nancy Waller (local event organiser) by emailing here or by phoning 01622 221254 (daytime).
