Jindy's Relay for Life

Eleven teams and about 65 participants took part in the Jindabyne Relay for Life at the weekend to raise funds and increase awareness about cancer.

They spent hours walking, jogging, running - any way they could really - round a local oval.

In essence, it's a celebration of cancer survivors, a chance to remember loved ones, and an opportunity to fight back against cancer.

It all began in Australia in 1999 and similar events are now held across the country every year, in every state and territory, and raise more than $14 million which is used by the Cancer Council in its fight against cancer.

In Jindabyne teams included the Windy Jindy outfit, Jindy Girl Riders, Wendy's Weekend Warriors, and Jindy Dancers.

So far they have raised about $11,000, with more to come.
