IF you want to fight back against cancer and have fun at the same time you don’t have to wait for the 2014 Relay for Life.
On September 28 some of the best-known action heroes will be dashing around Waratah Sportsground in a new teams-based relay-style event for all ages.
Teams will be made up of four people who will take turns to run around a 300-metre obstacle course, designed for all levels of fitness. Participants will pass the baton until each team member has successfully finished the course.
Tyre runs, squats, medicine balls, skipping ropes, climbs and star jumps will make up part of the course.
Orange and District Relay for Life Hero Dash spokeswoman Camilla Barlow said people who raised funds and awareness for Cancer Council NSW were our everyday heroes.
“We want all teams and participants to dress up as their personal hero,” she said.
“This is completely open to interpretation as it could be your favourite Power Ranger, Superman, your best friend, Wonder Woman, or your grandma - it’s up to you.
“All we ask is for you to get colourful, creative and be involved.”
The Relay for Life committee is looking for people to take part in two categories - open (for all fitness levels) and kids (for children under 16).
Participants in the 2014 Orange and District Relay for Life are eligible to take part.
Registration is $15, which includes a shirt and breakfast on the day of the relay in March.
