THE annual Frankston and Peninsula Relay For Life took place at Ballam Park in Frankston overnight on 21 September.

The event saw hundreds of people get together to run/walk in the early hours of the morning in a bid to raise money to help fight cancer.

The Cancer Council website states that 429 participants signed up to participate, and a total of over $80,000 was raised.

The Frankston High School Sports Leadership team raised over $10,000, as did the Penpals team.

Andrew Southgate (pictured above) from Too Inspired To Be Tired was a participant on the day. His group raised over $2000. CFA members Melissa and Ray (above right) also got involved.
