Eyethu Baywatch - - NEWS • IZINDABA - Conelia Harry

THE com­mu­nity of Zu­l­u­land is called upon to sup­port the CANSA Re­lay For Life event this Satur­day, to cel­e­brate can­cer sur­vivors, re­mem­ber those who have passed on and help cre­ate aware­ness about can­cer.

Hosted at the ZCBF Com­mu­nity Park from 6pm to 6am, lo­cal busi­nesses, com­pa­nies, schools, com­mu­nity groups and mem­bers of the com­mu­nity are urged to en­ter their teams and pay trib­ute to all those af­fected by can­cer, as well as those who treat and coun­sel them.

Reg­is­tra­tion for all can­cer sur­vivors at­tend­ing must be sub­mit­ted as soon as pos­si­ble for cater­ing pur­pose as there will be a spe­cial treat for them.

With the aim of rep­re­sent­ing hope that all of those lost to can­cer will never be for­got­ten, those who are fight­ing can­cer will be sup­ported and that one day can­cer will be elim­i­nated, Re­lay For Life em­braces the en­tire com­mu­nity.

Teams raise funds be­fore and dur­ing the re­lay and these funds are ded­i­cated to fund­ing CANSA’s unique, in­te­grated ser­vice within your com­mu­nity.

Mem­bers take turns to walk or run around a track for 12 hours and the goal is to keep one team mem­ber on the track at all times, as ‘can­cer never sleeps’.

En­try per per­son is R50 or R500 per team of 10.

Pen­sion­ers (65yrs) and chil­dren be­tween 2 to 13 years pay R25 while chil­dren un­der two are free.

For more in­for­ma­tion or to reg­is­ter con­tact Mar­ian on 061 3605230 or Xolani 062 0663804.
