Relay for Life launch
WHAT could be more fun than meeting the life-sized Relay For Life mascot Dougal Bear and getting a hug and photo at this weekend's Grafton Relay For Life launch?
The event kicks off at 9am today at Grafton Shoppingworld.
Cancer Council NSW Northern Rivers community relations co-ordinator Abby Wallace said they were inviting everyone in the community to attend the fun and free event.
"We are urging teams to sign up early and create some "purple" buzz around town for the upcoming relay," Ms Wallace said.
The launch will also feature colouring-in for the kids and free balloons, plus the launch of the Grafton Relay For Life major raffle for 2014.
The Cancer Council NSW Eat It To Beat It team will also be on hand, providing some tasty fruit and veg-filled food samples as part of their healthy eating cancer prevention campaign in the Clarence Valley.
