Relay for Life – Harrow: September 8-9, 2012

relay_for_lifeRelay For Life in Harrow is an inspirational community event which has raised over £400,000 for Cancer Research UK since 2006. Relay For Life Harrow raises between £50k to £90k for Cancer Research UK annually and has raised over £350,000 to date.  Over the course of the year teams find many different ways to raise funds, from producing cooking books to hosting music nights or running quizzes.  For new teams we aim to provide lots of help and support in running events so that raising monies before the event is not a daunting task.

The culmination for the years fundraising is the Relay For Life weekend.  The Relay For Life weekend is a celebration for cancer survivors, their carers, team members and the general public. It is a celebration of fundraising, a celebration of community, and a celebration of life.  During the weekend members of each team walk all day and all night to show solidarity with cancer sufferers in the battle they face every day.

More than one in three people will get cancer at some point in their life. Although cancer survival rates have doubled in the last 40 years there is still a lot of work to do. The vital work done by Cancer Research UK is funded entirely by the public and has helped millions of people survive cancer.
