Members from the Alpha Leo Club of Uitenhage and Despatch will join hundreds of people on Friday, March 11th, to participate in the Cansa Relay For Life which will be held at Victoria Park High School Sports Complex.

The aim of the relay is to honour cancer survivors, remember those who died of the disease, to raise awareness about cancer related issues and to raise funds helping fight the disease through research, education, advocacy and services.

The Muir College Alpha Leos started a fund-raising initiative where the pupils had the opportunity to vote, a rand for the teacher/s who they would like to see wearing a pink bra and pink hat if it’s a gentleman or a blue hat and tie if it’s a lady.

The colour “pink” and the bra are for breast cancer and the “blue” and hat for testicular cancer. The votes were tallied up and the four teachers were announced.

“Adding their own touch to the outfits, the teachers strode the corridors with pride and zeal, knowing they were supporting a very good cause,” said Aphiwe Zinto, Alpha Leo President.

“Thank you to all my fellow pupils from Muir College. We collected R1 105 from the votes, which will be donated to Cansa.”

The relay is from Friday, March 11th from 18:00 to 06:00 on Saturday, March 12th.
