RELAY 4 LIFE
Teams will be walking or running - yeah right - around a track for 22 hours to raise money and awareness for the Waikato/Bay of Plenty Cancer Society this weekend. Dress up and go for it. Husband and wife Jimmy and Betty Dick, who have both beaten cancer, walked their 10th annual Relay for Life last year. In 2012 Jimmy, complete with knee brace and walking stick, pushed Betty around the track in a wheelchair because they simply couldn't miss it. If they can do it, so can you.
