Relay For Life - a day against cancer
The Relay For Life is 18 -24 hours with the team relay, activities, entertainment and information that gives hope and support to everyone affected by cancer. The goal is to stand together in the fight against cancer and to raise funds for the Danish Cancer Society's work with research, prevention and patient support. In 2021, everything will be a little different and we are in full swing making plans for the safet this year. Read and see more at
