A good number of people from Fraserburgh took part in last year’s Relay for Life Peterhead. This year’s event will be held on July 1 and 2 at Lord Catto Park in Peterhead.

Relay for Life is a celebration of cancer survivors. A group of survivors open the relay by leading the first lap, and then they are treated to a reception tea afterwards. They are welcome to take someone with them who has supported them on their journey.

In the evening, there is a Candle of Hope ceremony that celebrates the lives of those battling with cancer, those who have survived, and in memory of the loved ones that we have lost in the fight against it.

Relay for Life is extremely grateful to these inspirational survivors for their participation in the event, as they highlight the success of what we are all fighting for!

If you have been inspired to take part in the Relay for Life Peterhead 2017 as a survivor, you are most welcome to become involved.

At present there are 20 teams registered, but it is early days and organisers are optimistic to surpass last year’s total of 31. If you would like to fundraise for the great work that Cancer Research UK does please join up.
