Knox Relay for Life – a message from Hon. Alan Tudge M.P.









I’m seeking your support for a significant community event coming up in Knox.  I’m proud to be Patron of the event and I am encouraging the local community to get behind the volunteer committee and get involved.

Knox Relay for Life supports the Cancer Council of Victoria.  Relay for Life has been running in communities across Australia for 17 years and this will be the seventh anniversary of the Knox Relay for Life.


Knox Relay for Life consists of teams who walk, jog or run for 18 hours around the Knox Athletics Track.  Rest assured, you don’t have to do the whole 18 hours yourself (although some people do!).  Rather, your team has to ensure that your team’s baton is being carried for the entire duration.  Teams gather sponsors and/or raise money for participating.  The Relay is also a time to remember those who have been lost to cancer or are in the process of having treatment or to celebrate with those who have beaten cancer.

The Relay for Life this year is again occurring at Knox Athletics Track on Saturday 21 April 2018, starting at 4pm for the official opening and finishing on Sunday 22 April 2018 at 10am. The committee would like to see a record number of teams and participants for their seventh year as do I.

Please consider registering a team from your Community to participate in the event.  Alternatively, you and your members would be very welcome to join TeamTudge or just come down to the event for part of the time and possibly throw in a few dollars.

You can find more detailed information and how to register at Knox Relay for Life.

Thanks for considering my request.

Kind regards,
