Organiser Peter O'Neill said:
We all know that Cancer knows no bounds and intrudes uninvited into the lives of young and old and shows no prejudice in in choosing its targets,men and women, teenagers and children.
We would love to see more Survivors coming forward with their stories and come along to the Opening Ceremony and take part in some pampering with the volunteers who are making their services available and all survivors are welcome regardless of whether part of a team or not. The importance of our Survivors cannot overestimated as they are giving hope to those currently undergoing treatment and indeed those who may at some stage be informed they have the disease.
Teams may be registered on the Relay for Life facebook page or contact committee members for help.
