DESPITE only 11 teams registered for tomorrow’s Hero Dash, the Cancer Council is hoping more will come on board.
Organised by the Relay for Life committee, the team-based obstacle event is being held to raise awareness of next year’s Relay for Life.
Cancer Council NSW Western Region community relations co-ordinator Camilla Barlow expects more registrations to come through for the event.
“It’s to get people thinking about next year’s Relay for Life,” she said.
The team of Brett Sammut, Janene Durack, Tayla Fieldus and Leanne Cook from Fitness Perfection are looking forward to the fun event.
A personal trainer, Mr Sammut thought the Hero Dash was a good event for them to be a part of.
“It’s to take a bit of the seriousness out of the whole event,” he said.
Mr Sammut’s wife Francine is battling breast cancer, and he will take part in the event to support her.
Relay For Life has been held in Orange for 11 years, with more than $1.17 million raised for Cancer Council NSW during this time.
The Hero Dash will be held at Waratah Sportsground tomorrow, with on-the-day registrations available from 8am.
Participants must be registered in the 2014 Orange and District Relay For Life to take part in the Hero Dash.
Registration costs just $15, which includes a shirt and breakfast on day of the relay in March.
