GEORGE NEWS - The tenth Cansa Relay for Life will be held on Saturday 25 March at the Carpe Diem sports grounds.
The theme for this year is 'Purple Extravacansa - let's paint George purple.' Lorraine Verhagen, Relay for Life's chairlady says to show their support for the relay, businesses are painting certain items purple. Even the big NG church in Courteney Street has a purple haze at night!
"Having had numerous successful Relays for Life in George, we will strive to take our fund-raiser to the next level in 2017 and hopefully, with the support of our sponsors, teams and the locals, we will surpass the tremendous R378 000 that was raised at last year's event," says Verhagen.
Cansa Relay for Life is part of an international movement that unites cancer survivors and the communities that care about them. It offers everyone in the community, both young and old, the opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer and to honour those who have been touched by cancer.
for Life is a fun, overnight team event, which is volunteer-driven and community owned. For more information contact the Cansa office on 044 874 4824, or to register your team, contact Leigh Ann De Wet on
