READY . . . Steady . . . Spin!

Three teams of twelve contestants each will ‘spin’ it out at Fountains Mall in a high-paced bid to raise much-needed funds for the Cancer Association of South Africa (Cansa) in Jeffreys Bay from 11:00 to 12:00 on April 2.

The three competing teams - Team Smhart, Team Edge and Team Coffee Society - will each involve six employees and six clients, who are prepared to ‘play dirty’ in order to trip their rivals in their race to the finish line. The team with the most kilometres on their clock will be crowned the winning team, and raise the most money for Cansa.

According to Gloria van Zyl from Smhart Security, each team will spin for five minutes.

“Each rival team, must pay for each kilometre that another team accumulates in the one-hour time frame. Needless to say that they will do eve-rything in their power to ensure that opposing teams clock as few kilometres as possible.”

Adding to the fun, is the opening of a brand-new shop at Fountains Mall, Do-fill. Owner Irma Hart has pledged to donate 50c towards Cansa for every Do-fill that is sold on April 2.

Come watch the teams battle it out for Cansa at Fountains Mall on April 2. One lucky supporter will win a weekend for two, while their house will be guarded by Smhart Security for the weekend of their trip. The winner will also receive a one-year gym membership and one-month personal training from Edge Fitness, as well as calorie-controlled meal vouchers from Coffee Society. For more information, contact Gloria van Zyl at 071 382 8501.
