Members of the Uitenhage/Despatch Alpha Leo Club will be joining hundreds of people participating in the Cansa Relay For Life which will be held on the 11th March at Victoria Park High School sports complex.

The Relay For Life is the Cancer Association of South Africa’s signature event where teams honour cancer survivors and remember those who died of the disease. Team members take turns walking or running around a track in the hope that cancer will one day be eliminated.

The goal of the relay is to raise awareness about cancer related issues while raising money to help fight the disease through research, education, advocacy and services.

“If it hasn’t already, cancer will affect you or someone you know. Will you help us take up the fight by making a donation to Cansa?” said Zinto Aphiwe, President of the Alpha Leo Club in Uitenhage.

  • The Cansa Relay for Life which will take place on Friday, 11th March from 18:00 to 06:00 on Saturday, 12th March. Luminaria will be lit to honour cancer survivors and to remember those who have lost the battle with cancer.
