Cancer Council Penrith Relay for Life 2016 Report.
As mentioned earlier, this year’s relay was at a new time of year, & a new venue, much more room, and a bigger track, (400mtrs compared to 330). Despite having only about 12 people signed up to take part, Prostate Pals East & West did very well. Don’t know at this stage exactly how much we raised, but it is between $2500 & $3000, happy with that. All up there were 109 teams, 1240 people registered, & when all the money is in, the total money could be well over $430.000
The 2 team members who took on the “challenge” both completed their mission, (one doing 72 laps, the other 72 k’s), congratulations John & Jarad.
Thank you, not only to the folk who took part in the relay, but thank you to those who visited us, sponsored us during relay, & those who helped put the tent up on the Friday, & pulled it down on the Sunday.
Take care, and
Enjoy each day
Eric Kent & John Kemp
