THE HILLS RELAY FOR LIFE SPRINGS INTO ACTION ON MAY 21ST, A RETURN TO THE 24-HOUR FORMAT THAT ATTRACTED THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE TO CASTLE HILL SHOWGROUND IN 2019.
And just like 2019, Hills Relay For Life coincides with the Federal Election. There will be a polling booth on site.
It’s a welcome return for the community event which took place over the internet in 2020 and was limited to a five hour ticketed event last year at Castle Hill Showground due to COVID restrictions. Last year’s mini event raised over $150,000.
This year’s event will be the 21st Hills Relay For Life which over the years has raised millions of dollars for the Cancer Council’s research grants and support programs.
Chair of the Hills Relay For Life organising committee Lisa Carrutthers from Glenorie said everyone was looking forward to getting back to a “normal” set up with tents around the track, all-day entertainment, food, stalls and a message of HOPE.
