Rangiora Relay for Life Raises Over $20,000 for Cancer Society

130323 Rangiora Walk for Life 3 (300x225)

The gathering before the start

The Rangiora Relay for Life last weekend raised over $20,000 for the Cancer Society. Last in the District none years ago, teams walked round and round and round a circuit in the Showgrounds arena – in relays of course – for 18 hours right through the night.

As I was walking around (part of the Rangiora Rotary team)  just before 3 a.m., I was timing my rather tired, sore-kneed and erratic circuits at a bit under 4 minutes.  It was also many years since a slept in hard ground!

Anyway, it was real fun and, as usual with community events, people were getting together for a worthwhile cause.
