Craigieburn’s Moore family will walk around the clock this weekend as part of Hume’s Relay for Life.
Mum Carly, who is a Hume councillor, said the family signed up for the fundraiser because cancer touches everyone’s lives.
She will be joined by three of her children – Madison, 11, Camryn, 8, and Lachlan, 6 – and her mother-in-law, Sharon.
Cr Moore hopes to encourage more people to sign up for the event, which raises money for the Cancer Council.
“I relay for the people we’ve lost, the people who are fighting and the people who will be diagnosed in the future,” she said.
This year’s relay will be held on April 8-9 at the Sprint Athletics Centre, 1140 Aitken Boulevard, Craigieburn.
It starts at 4pm and will feature a candlelight procession and a sufferers’ and carers’ lap.
