Talitha and Robert pick up the Relay For Life baton

ORGANISERS of Rockhampton Relay For Life are preparing to raise the bar in the fight against cancer next year, in an effort to reach out and support more locals affected by cancer.

Registrations are now open for Cancer Council Queensland's 2016 Rockhampton Relay For Life, set to be held on May 14-15 at Colts Rugby Union Oval.

Along with the brand new location, Talitha Dodson and Robert Rooney have taken on the role as co-chairpersons, bringing new vision to the annual event.

Mr Rooney said they were honoured to chair the committee and encouraged the community to get behind the inspirational event.

"Our goal is to make 2016 bigger and better than ever before and build on the excellent work of the committees that have come before us," Mr Rooney said.

More information about Cancer Council Queensland is available via 13 11 20 or www.cancerqld.org.au.

To register a team, volunteer or find out more, visit www.relayforlife.org.au or phone the fundraising hotline 1300 65 65 85.

Early bird registrations are $20 per person and close three months prior to the event. After that, registrations will be $30 per person or $40 on the day.
