Funds Raised


The Cancer Society takes the health and well-being of our communities seriously. In response to COVID-19 we have decided to postpone our Relay For Life events scheduled between now and the 6th April. We would like to thank all our event participants, volunteers and staff for the huge amount of work that has been done to plan and manage these events so far. We look forward to announcing new event dates when we can.

Relay for Life is an inspirational and super fun event for everyone of all fitness levels, during which we celebrate with survivors, remember loved ones lost to cancer and come together as a community to fight back against cancer. Teams decorate their allocated marquee/site and take turns, relay style walking/running around a track for 18 hours while enjoying a carnival atmosphere of live music, entertainment, games, activities and fantastic community camaraderie.

Click on the ‘Register' button to get started with either a whole team registration or to join a team or register individually to make up your team.

We strongly encourage teams of 10.

Registration is

Early Bird (Nov 2019 - 31st Jan 2020) $15 per team member

Standard (1st Feb - 15th March) $20 per team member

Late (16th March - 4th April) $30 per team member

Registration includes:

  • Marquee (variable sizes depending on team size)
  • Access to spot prizes throughout the event.
  • Complimentary breakfast served to participants
  • Live music, entertainment and activities

With no minimum size, teams are then encouraged to fundraise at least $250 per person to enable the Cancer Society to continue providing our free services to the community. 

Whether you are a cancer survivor, a carer, supporter or simply wanting to make a difference, Relay For Life empowers everyone involved.

Cancer Society Wellington

One in three New Zealanders will be affected by cancer in their lifetime.

The Cancer Society Wellington provides free support services and information for people going through cancer treatment and their friends, family and whānau. The Cancer Society is the largest funder of cancer research after the government. As an independent organisation the Cancer Society receives no direct government funding and is entirely reliant on the generosity of New Zealanders to provide these services. So thank you.
