IT’S that time of the year again when the
people of Pietermaritzburg gear up for one of CANSA’s biggest fund-raisers - the CANSA Relay For Life.

The event takes place at Natal Carbineers in Geere Street on March 10 from 2pm until 2am on March 11.

Businesses, religious organisations, schools, sports clubs and friends and family are urged to tally up their teams and support the relay.

The organising committee promises a fun-filled entertainment programme, delightful company, inspiring testimonies and great food.

One of the highlights of the event is the luminaria ceremony where loved ones, who lost the fight to cancer, are honoured.

If you have lost a loved one to the scourge of cancer, join in the remembrance ceremony where you will meet many like yourself who have
travelled a similar journey.
