Mums give relay a run for their money


THE Ocean Grove Barwon Heads Supermums are at it again.
The group of local women are again entering a team in the annual 24-hour Relay for Life, which will be held at Collendina Recreation Reserve from noon on 5 November through to noon on 6 November.
It will be the fourth year that the Supermums will amble their way around the reserve for the relay, which raises funds for cancer.
“We are a group of approximately 30 local mums wanting to raise money for cancer research, support and celebrate those in our team who have had cancer and to those who are still fighting their fight as well as remembering those we have lost,” Supermums team captain Rebecca Condon said.
“I overcame Hodgkin’s Disease nine years ago so this event is very special to me as it brings our community together to stand tall against this dreadful disease.”
The group got together and decided that they would have a second-hand clothes sale to begin the OGBH Supermums fund-raising campaign.
This year the Supermums raised more than $1000 to kickstart the team’s fund-raising campaign.
In 2015 the OGBH Supermums Relay for Life grand fund-raising total was $7800, qualifying them to a research award where they proudly put their efforts towards the Forgotten Cancer Project, supporting cancers such non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, leukaemia and brain cancer.
