Relay for Life needs you

Klerksdorp Midweek, Klerksdorp - It is all systems go for Cansa Relay for Life.

The annual survivor’s event is set to take place during the night of 7 November. Relay for Life is a fun, overnight team event which is volunteer-driven. Teams camp out overnight around the track and enjoy entertainment, fun and camaraderie in a festival-like atmosphere.

Teams of 10-15 friends, neighbours, families or co-workers commit to having at least one team member walking around the track for 12 hours (18:00-06:00), because cancer neither slumbers nor sleeps. Cancer Survivors, caregivers and those who have passed on are also honoured.

Teams are encouraged to raise funds in support of the fight against cancer. These funds are used to provide holistic care and support to those affected by cander and their loved ones. “Cancer affects us all and the Relay for Life is a celebration of hope and survivors, so please support us,’’ says Zee Dyson, chairperson of the Relay for Life committee.

One in four South Africans will be affected by cancer in their lifetime, either by a family member, friend, colleague or themselves.

Any business or individuals interested to participate or attend the event are welcome.
