Information about relay
An information night about next year's Cancer Council Relay for Life event on the Peninsula was held at Ocean Beach Surf Club on November 20.
The Peninsula Relay for Life has been renamed Brisbane Water Relay for Life and has been set for March 13 to 14 at Woy Woy Oval.
Relay chair Mr Lincoln Poole said the information night was an opportunity for people to find out about the relay.
"It's also important to consider the Cancer Council's health messages when selecting fundraising ideas.
"For example, rather than doing a chocolate drive or selling bottles of wine, you could consider fundraising by selling fruit and veggie boxes, sunscreen and hats, seedlings and bulbs or hold a fun event such as a fun run or walk, bike ride or surf trip."
The committee's next information and registration night will be held on February 17, at Ocean Beach Surf Club from 7pm.
"The Brisbane Water Relay committee will be handing out sunscreen and giving people information about the event at the Australia Day waterfront celebrations at Woy Woy," Mr Poole said.
"Registrations are being taken right now for next year's event.
"Get in early to register for the event at the 2009 price of $11.
"Registrations from January 1 will be $15 per person and $20 per person after the early bird close date of February 26."
