Canberra corporate band supports Canberra’s Relay for Life!

Canberra corporate band supports “Relay for Life”!

Canberra corporate band, The Silky Six, had an amazing time on Saturday, 29 March 2014. We were lucky enough to entertain the energetic and dedicated volunteers and participants of the Cancer Council’s Relay for Life at the AIS track.

The event included a moving candle ceremony where participants placed candles inscribed with messages of support and love around the track. Everyone in attendance was asked to remember the message of this years event, “Fight Back”, and a piper played the well-loved tune, “Amazing Grace”.

Participants then set off again around the track inspired by energetic tunes like “All Fired Up” and “Let me Entertain You” performed by Canberra corporate band, The Silky Six. A crowd of participants who weren’t required to be walking laps at the time flocked to the stage. We were spoilt to witness excellent dance moves, sensational singing and some fabulous demonstrations of “the Worm”!

There were people running, walking and skipping around the track. I believe one team this year even committed to 24 hours of exercise! Even when they weren’t on the track they were on bikes, doing push ups, sit ups or lifting weights!

It was a pleasure to witness such overwhelming commitment to a fabulous cause!
