Relay For Life is a volunteer led, fantastic community event where teams consisting of families, friends and colleagues from all backgrounds come together from Colchester and the surroundings to raise funds through the year to help Cancer Research UK’s life-saving work. The culmination of the Teams’ hard work in 2020 comes at the eighth annual Relay For Life Colchester on 27th and 28th June 2020.
Our Team Members take turns completing laps of a track during 24 hours of celebrating the lives of those surviving cancer, remembering loved ones who are no longer with us and fighting back against this dreadful disease.
Relay is many things to many people. We invite Cancer Survivors to inspire and support others going through treatment. We recruit teams of people whose lives have been touched by Cancer and who want to fight back – together we fund-raise, support each other, and have an amazing experience.
In the last 7 years, we’ve raised over £218,000 for Cancer Research UK. Join us in 2020 so we can continue to grow this hugely inspirational community event.
