Relay For Life

Relay For Life is an inspirational event for everyone of all fitness levels, during which we celebrate with survivors, remember loved ones lost to cancer and come together as a community to fight back against cancer.   Teams take turns relay style walking/running around a track for 10 hours while enjoying a carnival atmosphere of live music, entertainment, games, activities and fantastic community camaraderie.

  • Support the SunSmart van at community events with specific building project content
  • Other events specifically targeted to the build project
  • There may also be the need for some assistance with engaging with local businesses, organisations within their communities.


Attributes would be:

  • Confident dealing with the public
  • Some tech ability – an example will be to be able to work with iPads at events
