CANSA Shavathon

2016-02-25 06:00

THE Vishwaroop Temple will be hosting a Cansa Shavathon on 27 February as a host site.

The Cansa Shavathon is one of South Africa’s best-loved events in support of a very worthy cause, namely showing solidarity with those affected by cancer.

Losing one’s hair is a common side effect of cancer therapy so shaving a person’s head has become a symbolic gesture of support for cancer survivors.

Colouring your hair or paying a Bail Out Fee has become options for those who prefer not to shave, or who can’t shave on the day.

For those who like to be actively engaged and to make a difference, Shavathon embraces volunteers whose support is invaluable.

This will be the 13th national Cansa Shavathon, independently managed by Cansa staff and volunteers and they are looking forward to the community who can shave, spray or stencil their hair or all three.

The Shavathon is being held in malls and shopping centres on 27 February and at the Vishwaroop Temple from 9am-3pm where the community have been urged to get involved.

Anyone who wants to volunteer, assist or for more information contact Avni Singh on 0728839815.
