BELLARINE RELAY FOR LIFE

Last weekend the annual Bellarine Relay for Life was held at Leopold Primary School. This year a total of 21 teams made up of 203 participants took part in the relay and over $40 000 was raised for cancer research. A special mention goes to the team Breastie Besties, whose 13 members raised the highest amount, $10 000. Well done to them. Of course not only were there hundreds of participants, but many people also volunteered their time and effort to support the teams and the event itself. My congratulations and thanks go to all those people who were part of a very successful weekend. In particular I congratulate relay chairperson Loz Hardman who once again was the driving force behind the relay. Herself a survivor, Loz really is an inspiration, and I commend her for all her work.
