Relay For Life


On the 16th of March, 35 MHS students and 6 old boys headed over to Auburn High School to take part in the annual Relay For Life. Relay For Life is an event that is run by Cancer Council celebrates cancer survivors, remembers loved ones with cancer and supports cancer research.

It was a hot and sunny day, with cramps and fatigue proving to be a major issue. It was great to see everyone enduring the heat, running and encouraging each other throughout the day. Even though some of the team were recovering from the Senior Social the night before, our team was able to run 405 laps with the unicorn baton which is just over 100km! Many boys also ran over 20km which, considering the heat, was a tremendous effort.

We were also able to smash last year’s total donations, raising $7444, which placed us in 2nd place in most money raised for the event. Thanks to Tanzeel Khan for raising $2.27K as well as George Chen, Brian Nguyen, Seb Lunn and Ayaan Ayubi for raising over $200 each, which is just incredible.

A massive thank you to Ms Berlin for helping to plan the event, transport the marquee, supplying us with a Woolies trip and staying the whole day in the heat. Without her help, the day wouldn’t have been successful.

A massive congratulations to all that participated, and let’s continue to fight against cancer.
