On the first Saturday in April, we held our much-loved annual event – Relay For Life! It was a chance for celebration, a time to remember loved ones lost to cancer, and an opportunity to fight back by raising awareness and funds for the Cancer Society.

On the day, participants relayed around a track for 12 hours, raising a total of $557,724 across Auckland and Northland– an incredible result! Participants also enjoyed a range of fun activities while their teammates walked the track, including bag decorating, a talent show, and Zumba.

We sat down with Zumba instructor Jay find out what Relay means for her, and why she keeps coming back. Watch Jay share her story below.
