Relay For Life is the world's largest fundraising activity in the fight against cancer. The activity is growing year by year in Denmark, and we need more volunteers who will locally take on the task of planning content and physical settings together. A group of volunteers is planning the 12th Relay for Life Bjerringbro on 17-18 June 2023 at the Bjerringbro Culture and Sports Centre.
