THE circus was in town on Saturday, however it was not the one with animals jumping through rings of fire, rather it was community members who came together for the Cansa Relay For Life.

This year’s circus-themed event saw colourful clothing, wigs, banners and balloons fill Suid-Natal Primary’s grounds on Saturday afternoon as supporters and teams made their way to the event.

The purpose of the event, other than to raise funds for Cansa, was to remember those who have lost the fight to cancer, celebrate those who have survived and to fight back against the dreaded disease.

The first lap kicked off with cancer survivors walking around the field. Teams then took to the field with their banners. The rule of the event was that at least one member from each team has walk or run from 2pm to 2am the next day.
