Relay passes $32,000

THE Dumbalk Relay for Life, held last weekend, will raise more than $32,000 for cancer research.

One of the organisers, Walter Aitch, said the event, the seventh Relay in South Gippsland had been a great success, with 20 teams and a total of 385 people registering. About 140 of those did so on the weekend.

“That’s one more than our previous highest of 384. Donations don’t close for another four weeks, but we expect to take

$32, 262.80.”

The two most successful money-raising teams, the Leongatha IGA Team and Gippsland Grammar Heroes, who will both raise more than $5000 a piece, have already reregistered for 2014.

Cracking the $5000 mark allows the teams to negotiate which research project their money will go towards.
