THE 2014 Lockyer Valley Relay For Life has raised more than $80,000.

The 27 teams walked the 18-hour relay on May 10 and 11 to raise money for Cancer Council Queensland.

Lockyer Valley Relay For Life chairwoman Kirsten Sippel congratulated team Friends and Family United for raising the most money for the relay, which currently sits at $13,500.

The money raised goes towards research, support and services for cancer.

Ms Sippel finished her third and final year as chairperson and the committee is now searching for someone to take over for next year.

If anyone is interested, phone 0457 384 961.
