Relay for Life at Albert Park Lake

Relay for Life is an event for people whose lives have been touched by cancer - and whose hasn't? The relay goes for 24 hours. People form teams to walk through the 24 hours. A beautiful ceremony is held as darkness falls at 6.30 pm. I love that people camp overnight at Albert Park Lake, and each year am moved anew by the way people celebrate the loss and survival of friends and family.

I joined the Gasworks walkers for a walk around the lake. The walkers set out from Gasworks in Graham St on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 9 am. No formal joining is required - just turn up. The group has been a great support to walkers through illness, recovery and sometimes the loss of one of their members.
I have supported the Relay since 2004.
