Even after 14 years of Relay for Life in Wagga, organisers are still working towards making each event more successful than the last.
The official launch of the 2016 event will be held this eveningand chairman Daniel Kisela said participants will notice some changes.
After falling short of $200,000last year, organisers are lowering their target for 2016 to $180,000.
Teams who bank more than $2000 by September 30 will be put in the draw to win a prize after more teams than ever banked no money last year.
“We keep learning every year but we know what worked last year,” Mr Kisela said.
Mr Kisela said every team holds different motivations for relaying and part of the lure of the event is getting to know what they are.
Strangers meet and form a common bond as people of all ages strive for one thing –a cure.
“It’s such an emotional rollercoaster on the day,” Mr Kisela said.
“It’s a great event.
“Raising money is one aspect of it but you’re engaging with complete strangers.”
Relay for Life will be held fromOctober 8 to 9.
Registrations can be madenow via the Relay for Life website.
Those who register at the Good Guys at the launch from 6pm to 8pm tonight will receive the early bird discount and $20 of store credit.
