NEXT year's Relay for Life will be Ipswich's 10th, but an even more impressive milestone beckons.

With the overall fundraising tally for Ipswich's annual event reaching $998,000 after the last event, the city's walkers are preparing to crack the $1 million mark on April 20 and 21 next year.

The Aussies Against Cancer team, which has been involved in the local Relay for Life for the past nine years, is already excited about the next fundraiser and is calling for Ipswich people to get involved.

Teams of between 10 and 15 can join for $20.

Aussies Against Cancer team captain Tarana Cruice said the event had grown from about 50 teams in 2004 to more than 100 teams in 2010.

 Next year's relay will be held at Jim Finnimore Oval. Anyone who wants to get involved with their own team can contact Tarana Cruice directly on 3281 4783, or visit the website at relayforlife.org.au.
