MORE than $24,000 has been raised as part of this year's Relay For Life, with funds still being deposited by the 26 teams that took part on the weekend.
Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Spiderman were a few recognisable heroes at the event that was held at the Proserpine Showgrounds.
Teams walked around the track for 18 hours to raise money and awareness for Cancer Council Queensland, with some pitching tents to lend support and camp the night.
Cancer survivors and their carers led the first lap of the relay in a survivor's walk, with those who lost their fight against cancer remembered in a moving 'Hope' ceremony where people lit candles and wrote messages for loved ones.
The Superhero Squad were named the highest fundraisers at the end of the event, while Whitsunday Dance Connection won the Faust's IGA team spirit award.
St Catherine's Primary School recorded the most laps between 1-3am, while the Victorious Villains claimed the prize for the best banner.
The best decorated camp site was Savers and Saboteurs, while The Avengers took home the prize for the best dressed team.
Whitsunday Relay For Life chair Wendy Barker thanked everyone for their hard work and efforts in making the charity event a success.
