As of Sunday morning, over $38,000 had been raised for the 2019 Bathurst Relay for Life.
And they number is expected to exceed $50,000 when counting is finished and final money has been collected.
The weekend's Relay for Life brought to together more than 400 participants, 37 teams and 50 survivors and carers to raise money for cancer research, support and prevention.
This year was the 20th edition of the event, which was held at Watson Oval at All Saints Campus.
Starting at midday on Saturday, the event went right through the night and onto Sunday morning, wrapping up at 9am.
It meant some sleepless participants spent the night walking around Watson Oval.
While they weren't there all night, Bathurst District Prostate Cancer Support Group was in attendance, raising awareness for a type of cancer that most men are not too willing to talk about according to treasurer Tony Sutton.
"We don't get a lot of people speaking to us because men don't really want to talk about it. We normally end up speaking to their wives," he said.
"We just want to raise awareness. We had a sign up and info about who you talk about prostate cancer.
"A lot of men don't seek treatment until they get symptoms and by then, it's might be too late. Treatment can be much easy when there is no symptoms, so it's important to go for those yearly checkups."
Everyone in the support group has had prostate cancer at one time and for Mr Sutton he was lucky that it was caught through a blood test.
"I had radiation treatment and it proved a success. It's been nine years now I've been clear," he said.
He said men aged 50 and older should get yearly tests, while men aged 40 and older who have a family history of prostate cancer should get tested every two years.
A team of 22 participants was a part of Simplot's Relay for Life team.
It was the first year Simplot entered a team for the cancer fundraiser, with four of the team's participants spending the night at All Saints Campus, walking for most of it.
The team's original target was to raise $2500, but that rose and currently stands at $4000.
On Sunday morning, the Relay for Life website indicated the team had passed its target with $4582 raised.
"We had a chocolate toss, raffle, toasties and a chocolate jar guessing game," team leader Tess Lamont said.
"This is our first year and we're really happy with what we've raised. Our original target was $2000 and we had to up it a few times.
"People have been really generous."
