Walkers sleepy but determined

RELAY for Life participants were up and at em in the early hours of Saturday morning; clocking up laps despite their lack of sleep.

Some people were partaking in an aerobics class in the middle of oval while others were pumping their arms at a brisk pace, power walking around the track.

But others chose to stay inside their tents, trying to get a little more shut-eye despite the hustle and bustle.

Teens Emma Lio, Rachael Donnellan, Brittany Trindall and Jemma Patullo said they had only slept for about an hour overnight.

"It was really cold," Ms Lio said.

"We got up at 5am and watched Frozen."

The girls said they all had family members who had cancer and were participating to show their support.

The Bravehearts team were marking their 10th year of participation.

Team captain Wendy Aitkenhead said most of the group were cancer survivors.

She said they had 33 people walking for the occasion - double their usual number - and they all loved the atmosphere at the event.

"It's nice to raise money for a good cause," she said.
