School and youth teams are a big part of what makes Relay For Life Wellington Region so special.  Last year, over 50% of the 4000+ Relayers taking part in the Wellington Region event were part of a school team!  

To ensure the health and safety of such a large number of minors, as well as those of all Relay For Life participants, the Cancer Society kindly requires that all majority youth teams (50%+ under the age of 19) be officially sanctioned by a school, community organisation, or club.  Independent youth teams will not be allowed to participate in the event, unless they apply in writing to the Cancer Society Wellington no later than Thursday, 31 January, 2019 for an exception following the below instructions:

  • The person wishing to be the team captain of the independent youth team must write an email including:
    • Summary of the team and why they wish to take part in the event seperate from a school team
    • A list of all those wishing to join the team and schools they are currently attending
    • A complete supervisor roster (can be downloaded from Relay campaign home page).  Please note that there must be at least 2 adult supervisors on site at all times throughout the event.  Supervisors must either be a parent/guardian of a registered member of the team or staff member at a school/club sanctioning the team.
    • A signed youth team consent form,
  • Email Alex Harty-Morris (, Community Events Coordinator, no later than 31 January 2019 with all of the above.  Incomplete and late applications will not be accepted.
Do not register until your team has been given written permision from the Cancer Society Wellington to participate.  Registration fees and fundraising will not be refunded.

Please contact us directly with any further questions on our Youth Team Participation Policy.  We appreciate your compliance as it helps ensure that all our Relayers have a fun, safe experience.
