THIRTEEN teams and $35,000.
They are the goals of the Local Yokel Clodhoppers’ Club who will, for the first time, host the Alpine Shire Relay for Life event at the Myrtleford Showgrounds later this year.
The group will officially launch the Cancer Council fundraiser at an information session at Club Savoy from 6pm on Wednesday, July 27.
Clodhoppers’ team leader Glenda Janas said the fundraising was already well under way.
“The good news is we are tracking well, with nine teams and $4886 already gained,” she said.
“There are whispers that other people are trying to pull together some teams and I guess that’s what the launch is all about – the idea is that we do the fundraising largely ahead of the event.
