Take a lead role at your local Relay For Life and captain your own team. You'll need between 10 and 15 people - ask your friends, relatives, neighbours, colleagues to join your team. Numbers are not set in stone, but remember that more than 15 members may be too hard to manage and fewer than 10 means it's hard to keep someone on the track for the whole event.

Select a team from the full list or search for a team name using the 'find' box. If you're unsure of the spelling, put in the first couple of letters and hit 'find' and all teams with names containing those letters will be shown. Please click here to join a team.
Perhaps it's more your style to sponsor someone by donating money. All you need to do is find the team or individual you want to sponsor by searching for their name in 'Find' box (top right) and click here to donate.
Even if you don't want to do the Relay itself, you can still join your friends, family or loved ones in some of the events held on the day of your local Relay. Usually there is a survivors walk or a candlelight ceremony happening for each Relay. Just look for your local Relay using the 'find' box on this site and you'll see what different events are scheduled for the day.
All Relays are run by a volunteer committee so it can be difficult at times to gain access to specific products and services that are needed to make each Relay a success.
Here are some examples of what we are looking for:
You can volunteer to help out on the day - anything from registering participants to handling the merchandise or even helping transport people around. Please click here to volunteer at your local Relay or view our Volunteer page for more information. Cancer Council NSW also has a range of volunteer roles requiring different amounts of time - from full-time placements, to an afternoon a week or one-off events.
