Mayoral Column

This year Hawkesbury City Council will participate as an organisation in the Hawkesbury Relay for Life to connect with our community and show our support to staff and community members who have been affected by cancer.

This is the fourth year that Council has entered a corporate team in the Relay for Life. We had a great result last year and it is always wonderful to see staff and their family members devote personal time to this event.

Relay For Life is a fun and special overnight experience that raises vital funds for the Cancer Council’s research, prevention, information and support services. It is also a chance for all of our Hawkesbury community to recognise local cancer survivors, patients and their carers. It is a precious time to remember loved ones lost to cancer while raising money to help save more lives.

I would like to ask you to join the thousands of Australians who take part in Cancer Council’s Relay For Life each year in the fight against cancer by starting or joining a team in the Hawkesbury 2018 Relay. Fundraising starts now and the actual event will be held from 9:30am on Saturday, 22 September 2018 until: 9:30am on Sunday, 23 September 2018.
