A big thank you again to the National Cancer Society Malaysia (NCSM) for organising another Relay for Life event. This year the annual event was held in the UKM Stadium, Bangi on 16 July 2011.
The event kicked off at 5 pm with blaring Boy Rock bands setting the mood for a fun and festival evening. I estimate several thousands came and participated in the programmes. Cancer survivors wore pupple Tees and supporters all wore yellow Tees. Fancy dressed participants were also spotted in the stadium.
I arrived just before 5 pm amongst the busy volunteers and eating stalls setting up. Mics And speakers systems were tested. Tentages for the nights were already setup much earlier and their sponsors started to arrived.
Suvivors came in organised groups from as far as Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, taiping and Ipoh.
The organsisers drew up very comprehensive and lively programmes for the 16 hours event.
I participated in the survivors lap which was joined by throngs of volunteers starting the Relay for Life around the stadiun track for the next 16 hours.
A very deserving tribute was read for Cik Lisa who passed away in May this year. Lisa was a very strong supporter of NCSM. Everybody knew Lisa and would miss her presence in all NCSM activities.
There were fun games, line dancing, taekwondo and musicians as part of the fun activities.
I managed to take about 250 photos for the event and have uploaded for your viewing.
Unfortunately I had to leave the event just after the luminaria were lighted.
I will let my pictures speak for the event.
Thank you again NCSM and all volunteers who had lent a hand to make this year's Relay For Life another successul event.
