The combined fundraising efforts of six Relay for Life teams from the Pakenham Campus have already raised $12,000, with donations still flowing in after the Friday 24 event.

Five House teams from Beaconhills, plus Little Beacons Learning Centre, participated in the all-night walk around the Toomuc Reserve oval.

Two brothers from Woods House, Bailey and Joel McLean (Year 5), managed to raise an impressive $1000 – double their original relay goal.

On the Relay for Life website, the duo said two of their uncles were currently fighting cancer: “Cancer has taken people from our lives too soon, and we want to make sure that this doesn’t happen to other families.”

The Blixt family (Clark House) also donated $500.

The 44 teams who took part in the Cardinia Relay for Life have so far raised around $92,195 – well ahead of the $80,000 goal. The Casey event starts this Friday 3 March at Berwick’s Akoonah Park.
