Cancer Survivors are the most important people at Relay.
That is why they are our Guests of Honour.
We want to salute their courageous journey with cancer and offer them a very special treat – a day of fun and togetherness. All for free!
We invite them to celebrate the amazing work being carried out by Cancer Research UKand everyone else involved in beating cancer sooner.
Who are our Guests of Honour?
Anyone who has ever been told
“You have cancer …”
Anyone who has gone through cancer treatment in the past,
or is going through one now.
We call them Cancer Survivors.
They are women and men of all ages,
as well as children.
A day to remember!
Your Guest of Honour day starts at 11am with a Champagne reception - a fantastic opportunity to meet others who have been through similar experiences.
At 12pm you kick off the 24h Relay! You play an essential role, as you have the honour of leading the very first Relay lap, being followed by all our team members.
A light lunch is served from 12.15, after which you can just enjoy the rest of the day. We have activities for children, women and men.
You can stay with us the whole day or even overnight. This unique event is full of fun and activities. In the evening, there is a beautiful Candle of Hope ceremony, remembering those who have sadly lost their lives to cancer.
