Cancer Council Victoria's Bendigo Relay for Life is one of the longest running and most successful Relays in Victoria - having raised in excess of $3.6m since 1999.

Bendigo residents of all ages are encouraged to participate or donate to one of Bendigo's premier community fundraising events to help fund a cure and support services for all cancers - a disease that will eventually affect one-in-three Victorians.

Pre-covid the annual Bendigo Cancer Council Relay for Life was an overnight community event remembering and celebrating the memory and achievements of cancer sufferers and their families.

A shorter format is scheduled for 2021 starting at noon before ending at 10pm, at the La Trobe University Athletes Complex in Retreat Road, Flora Hill.

The Opening and Candle Light Ceremony will still be integral to this year's event as will the drawing of the popular Holiday Raffle along with a day of entertainment and activities including a concert featuring former Bendigo twins and nationally acclaimed folk duo Alana and Alicia.
