Relay For Life Launch

The Colour Purple seemed the obvious movie choice for the launch of the purple-tinged Hills Relay For Life at Event Cinemas Castle Hill last week.

Supporters, team members and sponsors were special guests for the evening which highlighted last year’s Cancer Council fundraiser and plans for this year’s 24-hour event at Castle Hill Showground on May 18th/19th.

It will be the 23rd Hills Relay For Life event held in the Hills. The first lap for survivors and carers at 10am will be followed by a packed program of entertainment and activities including the moving candlelight Hope Ceremony at 6pm.

On Sunday, May 19th dog morning returns. The last lap for the 2024 Hills Relay is just before 10am on Sunday May 19th.

Hills Relay chair Lisa Carruthers said last year’s Hills Relay was the biggest event in Australia and raised nearly $360,000. This year’s target is $350,000. She thanked sponsors and supporters including Purple sponsors Event Cinemas Castle Hill, Castle Towers and CHRG.

The first Team information night will be Tuesday March 12th at Lucy’s Bar at Castle Hill RSL, starting at 6.30pm. If you want to register a team visit and search for Hills 2024.
