Relay for Life

May 21, 2018 at 4:26 pm

This weekend, the 19th and 20th May, 17 students from the RGGS Year 12 cohort participated in the annual Cancer Council’s Relay for Life. Relay for Life is a fun and moving overnight experience that raises vital funds for the Cancer Council’s research, prevention, information and support services. Relay is a chance for the Rockhampton community to recognise and celebrate local cancer survivors, patients and their carers, to honour and remember loved ones lost to cancer and to raise money to help save more lives.

Our confident and connected participating students from Year 12 persevered through the cold conditions of the weekend, continually walking laps of the CQU oval in the name of cancer research. We raised an astonishing $3,200 and were the second highest youth team in the region for fundraising.

A huge thank you must go to all the students, parents and teachers for their tireless efforts for the event. Mr Edwards and Mrs Whitehand were on hand to supervise the girls all through the night.
