Representing the Street Team Diego, got involved with the volunteers at Hillier Oval who were honouring cancer suffers and walking for a cure at the Relay for Life.

Community groups, dance groups, volunteers and those relaying against cancer came together at Hillier Oval, for The Relay for Life event on Saturday March 23. And not to forget a giant police penguin also made an appearance!

The mood of the event was cheerful yet reflective as participants remembered the people they lost to the who have passed as a cause of the terrible disease.

Sergeant Gibson and her police group got involved with the relay to represent the people in their lives who have been effected by cancer.

“My father is dealing with cancer at the moment; a few of us have lost loved ones with cancer,” she said.

The event welcomed special guest appearances from Batman, Spiderman, The Joker, Charlie the Giant Police Penguin as well as local dancers Kookies n Kream who said they were excited to be back home.

“We started here in Liverpool, it’s always good to give back to where we started,” they said.

Continued into the next day people the enthusiasm of the people involved was evident.
