Relay for Life

Centennial Parklands may be synonymous with sport and athletics, but this weekend we’re hosting a relay of a different kind – and you’re invited to come and help make a difference in the lives of others. Join us for the Relay for Life.

Last year over $430,000 was directly raised by charitable and fundraising events held in Centennial Parklands, with up to $2.1 million in indirect donations.

One of our regular annual events is the Relay for Life, raising funds for The Cancer Council NSW.

Last year over $150,000 was raised at Relay for Life
