The 2015 Knox Relay for Life has raised over $50,000 for the Victorian Cancer Council.
Held over the final weekend in March, 30 teams with 409 participants walked or ran throughout the night to raise money for cancer research.
The Knox Relay for Life has raised over $300,000 for the Victorian Cancer Council over the past four years.
The Federal Member for Aston and Relay Patron, the Hon Alan Tudge MP, said the relay was a great achievement which showed the strength of the Knox community.
“Raising another $50,000 for the Cancer Council highlights what the Knox community can achieve when we pull together to support a worthy cause,” said Mr Tudge.
“There were hundreds of people walking or running throughout the night, showcasing the strength of the teams who competed.”
“The Knox Relay for Life is one of the best community events in Knox, year after year.”
Over 700 people are diagnosed with malignant cancer every year in Knox alone, with cancer affecting almost every Australian family in one form or another.
