The month of March brings with it a few interesting events! We have some birthdays, a few deadlines for university and also an event called Relay For Life.
Relay For Life is an event where communities around Australia recognise and celebrate people who have overcome cancer or are currently going through treatment, and also the people who have helped care for them. The event also remembers those who have lost their life due to cancer. While fundraising is an ongoing and yearly process, teams gather at a location (usually a sports ground) and participate in a relay where they'd walk or run around a track. The event is held overnight and usually runs for 24 hours and is a good opportunity to meet others at the event and enjoy the activities which are on offer at the relay.
I've done the Relay once before and was one of the most enjoyable things I have ever done. I was in high school walking with my high school team and I'm glad that I'm doing it again this year. It will be a bit chilly but nothing that can't be solved with a jumper, snow jacket (definitely not forgetting that) and some explorer socks! I had about 2 hours sleep while I was there but it probably was one of the only times that I didn't complain that I was tired. If you think about it, there are so many others who are in a worse situation than you and 2 hours sleep is something to be extremely grateful of.
If you want and if you can (and I mean this truly), I'll leave a link to my little page on the Relay For Life website here if you wish to donate. If you can donate that would be amazing and really appreciated but if you can't that's not a problem! Just send your good luck vibes for me when I'm doing the relay!
