On International Volunteer Day (5 December) we celebrate our amazing Cancer Council SA volunteers who make our lifesaving work possible. By donating their time, skills, and energy to help Cancer Council SA support those in our community impacted by cancer, our volunteers ensure we can continue to fund ground-breaking research and provide vital services to those who need them most.

Relay For Life Adelaide volunteers

The Adelaide Relay For Life is the biggest Relay in the state—bringing together families, friends and loved ones to make strides towards a cancer free future.

In 2021 our dedicated Adelaide Relay For Life Organising Committee, made up of passionate volunteers, brought the event to life in just under 16 weeks, which was a fantastic achievement.

Adjusting to a new, nine-hour Relay For Life, our volunteers engaged with participants, motivating them to fundraise. They came together to make sure the event was not only a great success but went ahead safely and met all the COVID-19 restrictions.

In total, 35 teams took part, raising more than $91,000 for Cancer Council SA, which will make an incredible difference to the lives of South Australians impacted by cancer.

The volunteers behind the scenes

Every week, Cancer Council SA’s team of dedicated warehouse and office volunteers give up their time to pack essential items and provide administrative assistance—enabling us to deliver programs, services, and events to the South Australian community.

From packing host kits for Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, to organising site boxes for Daffodil Day, our warehouse volunteers are the people behind the scenes, helping to deliver iconic Cancer Council SA events and services.

Thank you to all our volunteers…

In the past year, 202 individual volunteers supported Cancer Council SA, attending 118 individual events, filling 1,528 individual job roles, and dedicating 5,949 hours to Cancer Council SA!

The support of our amazing volunteers makes a vital difference, ensuring no one has to go through a cancer experience alone. Thank you for your continued dedication and support towards our vision of achieving a cancer free future.
