Relay for Life 2024 was simply outstanding. Building on previous years, this year we had over 500 students and staff fundraising for the Cancer Society by running, walking, skipping, and even cartwheeling around the AUT Millennium Track for 12 consecutive hours. The theme for the event was Super Heroes, which was reflected in the spirit of our Rangitoto College teamthey kept up their energy and determination throughout the day. The rain cleared early and left a lovely blanket of cloud that helped prevent sunburn. Later the sun came out, which brought a sparkle to the late afternoon. 


We were entertained by various activities like line dancing, singing, tug of war, meditation, Zumba, a talent show, and many games.  Rangitoto’s volleyball sets proved a fun and popular pastime with all participants, regardless of their school allegiance.  It was fantastic to see our ākonga vibrantly serving their community and demonstrating our school values. Rangitoto College successfully raised over $78 000 on the daymore than we ever have before. It is not too late to donate. Sign up to and enter Rangitoto College as your team. 


We will be back again next year and encourage all students to consider joining our team in 2025, as we continue to support the Cancer Society in the fight against cancer.
