Relay for Life around the corner

2018-02-22 06:01

WITH just over two weeks left before the annual Cansa Relay for Life walks off, teams must hurry if they would still like to enter.

The cancer association in Jeffreys Bay is calling all residents and businesses to participate in this year’s Relay for Life at Fountains Mall at 18:30 on March 9. The official opening will take place at 19:00, which will be followed by a survivors’ walk.

“We need all the support we can get to make CANSA’s Relay for Life for 2018 an unforgettable event,” says Selina van Deventer, Manager of CANSA in Jeffreys Bay. “It is a fun, indoor fundraising event where teams take turns to walk around the track.

According to Van Deventer, the local Relay for Life raises much-needed funds for Cansa’s services in Jeffreys Bay and surrounding areas. All the money raised during the event will be used for cancer research and to assist cancer patients in financial need.

Lumenaria bags

Lumenaria bags, in memory of a cancer survivor or to those who have lost the battle against cancer, are available at R10 each.

Decorated Lumenaria bags must be returned by March 1.

Community members interested in becoming involved in this fun-filled event, can contact Van Deventer at 084 513 6959
