2020 Taranaki Relay For Life - Register today!

The Cancer Society takes the health and well-being of our communities seriously. In response to COVID-19 we have decided to postpone our Relay For Life events scheduled between now and the 6th April. We would like to thank all our event participants, volunteers and staff for the huge amount of work that has been done to plan and manage these events so far. We look forward to announcing new event dates when we can.

Relay For Life is an inspirational fun event for everyone, all ages and all fitness levels, during our 12 hour event we Celebrate with survivors, Remember loved ones lost to cancer and come together as one big community to Fight Back against cancer. Team members take turns relay-style walking/running/skipping around a track while enjoying a carnival atmosphere of music, entertainment, food stalls and fantastic community spirit. 

People throughout Taranaki Region will come together again for RfL and with your help and support we're hoping 2020 will make an even bigger impact on the fight against cancer and to continue to support people in Taranaki impacted by cancer.

Are you ready to Relay? Anyone can do it, just do it! We welcome family/whanau, service and community organisations, corporate groups, local businesses, schools and sporting clubs to register for this event!

Registration is $150 for a team of 10 (and $15 per person thereafter)

 Cancer Survivors and Caregivers

Join us to lead our Relay as Heroes of Hope! The Cancer Society of New Zealand Taranaki invites you to participate as a survivor or carer in our lap of honour. This lap gives us the opportunity to celebrate your achievement. Your presence will give our Relay teams the inspiration to walk the track for the 12 hours and face this challenge with as much courage as you have shown in your fight against cancer.

To register for the lap of honour and luncheon please complete the free registration or contact the centre on (06) 7573006 to register in person.
