Bank team ready for relay
THE Relay for Life for 2010 is starting to gain momentum with several teams nominating for the first time this year.
One of those is the NAB Angels, which is so far made up of eight people from the NAB’s Airlie Beach branch.
That number is expected to grow with team captain Haylea Vassalo actively recruiting new members.
And although this may be the team’s first relay, there are some experienced campaigners within the team.
Ms Vassalo has been part of teams from several other branches but having recently relocated to the Airlie Beach branch, she decided to organise their debut.
“Being new to the town, it’s a good opportunity to meet new people and have some fun,” Ms Vassalo said.
“I’ve personally been affected in the last five years with friends and members of family suffering the disease so I think we need to raise as much money as possible for research.”
The NAB Angels are aiming to raise $5,000 with several fundraising ideas.
Relay for Life will be held at the Proserpine Showgrounds on April 17 and 18.
