Celebrate. Remember. Fight back.

This year Kay Smith our Office Manager who you will know from our Head Office in Forfar will take part in Relay For Life, this is a year-round team fundraising challenge bringing communities together to beat cancer. Teams of family and friends fundraise for life-saving cancer research, then join a 24-hour celebration where they take turns to walk around the track through the night, showing that together we are stronger than cancer.

Kay told us why she was doing this "I have done the Relay for Life a couple of times now but this year it has more significance after losing my Dad late last year to Cancer"

The event takes place in Kirriemuir on the 12th August and her team is the Og’s Rogue’s with their Team Captain Tracy Douglas at the helm of the 12 team members. As well as walking the track for 24 hours there will be a few more significant moments- 

Survivors' Lap of Honour

Relay For Life Kirriemuir will begin with the inspiring Survivors' Lap of Honour. Cancer survivors will walk the first lap of the course, cheered and supported by the community. Together we celebrate life and the efforts we are all making to help beat cancer sooner.

Candle of Hope ceremony

As the evening draws in, everyone gathers to light Candles of Hope and pay tribute to those whose lives have been affected by cancer. Bags are decorated and lit up by a glowing candle so that poignant messages of remembrance and celebration line the track to create a moving and unforgettable moment.

The closing ceremony

At the end of Relay For Life Kirriemuir, everyone joins together for a final lap to celebrate their fundraising achievements and look back on an unforgettable experience.
