Relay for Life

The Rockhampton Relay for Life event kicks off at 2 pm this Saturday, 19 May and is once again being held here at CQUniversity.

I’ll be heading down to the event to show my support for all of the individuals and teams participating and I am glad that as a university we can support this cause by providing our wonderful facilities. It’s a great way for CQUni to give back to a very worthy cause.

It’s also not just the Rockhampton campus that gets behind this either with other CQUniversity campuses running fundraising activities and registering teams for the relay. In fact over the past few years, staff at the Bundaberg campus, have raised tens of thousands of dollars.

As well as being a great fundraiser, Relay for Life is also a great community event, bringing together individuals from local schools, charities, community groups and businesses in the fight against leukaemia.

Well done to everyone who has gotten a team together and registered for the event this weekend, hopefully this Saturday night is not too cold.
