A Fun Day For a Serious Cause
Last year, 873 people in the Boroondara area were diagnosed with cancer. The Hawthorn (Boroondara) Relay for Life provides a way for the community to fight back against cancer at a local level. In the last eight years, the Hawthorn Relay For Life has raised just over $880,000 for the Cancer Council. These funds are imperative to improving cancer outcomes, by funding research, prevention, and support programs.
