DESPITE the indifferent weather, teams poured into the grounds of the Natal Carbineers with one objective in mind — and that was to have an event that will remain etched in their minds and hearts.

The rapturous sound of 59 teams chanting their slogans against cancer echoed throughout the afternoon.

Spectators and supporters enjoyed the tasty food on sale and mind altering music by Yash Sounds.

As evening dawned, the most significant aspect of Cancer Relay For Life was the Luminaria Ceremony.

The testimonies of our survivors and caregivers sent us on an emotional roller coaster.

And then came the rain, which brought proceedings to an unprecedented halt much to the dissatisfaction of the relayers and supporters.

However, due to safety reasons, we succumbed to natures call.

Our most profound thanks to all our sponsors, especially our chief sponsor, Crystal Cooldrinks, for their magnanimity.

Anand Gounden, event co-ordinator, would like to thank his dedicated team of volunteers for their commitment and vibrancy which resulted in a function of this magnitude.
