The 2008 Relay starts here!

Well we've finally closed the books on 2007, with the staggering total of £85,000 after expenses. While money isn't the only measure of success for a Relay, it's extremely satisfying to have raised so much for vital research.

You'll have noticed the title change to our blog - we're now the 2008 Relay blog! And we are looking for help to achieve our ambitious target of 50 teams and a six-figure profit. So please:

  • Put a diary note for the weekend of 13/14th September 2008 at the same venue as previously (the Bannister Centre in Harrow Weald).
  • Get your teams together for a kick-off meeting - remember, you can start fundraising and recruiting new members right now.
  • If you'd like to take part in the event organisation we will welcome you with open arms! Just drop us an email to relayforlifeharrow@london.com with some contact details and we'll get right back to you. Any level of involvement from subcommitee chair to helper on the day is up for grabs so don't hold back and do pass the word around.

A promise - the 2008 Relay will have all the best bits of this year and last (including the best of the entertainers), but will also have some new features, so watch this space!

Here's to a great 2008 Relay.
