    Cansa relay for life

    The day will end with the Luminaria Ceremony. This is to honour and reflect on those that are no longer with us.

    The annual Relay for Life takes place this Saturday, 2 March, at Laerskool Goedehoop. This year’s theme is Carnival and was released at the launch on Monday, 25 February. It will not take place over 12 Hours as in the past but 6 hours. Teams are encouraged to engage in a fundraising exercise to raise R1000 for Cansa. The relay promises to be a highlight as it is every year. There will be live entertainment throughout the event and prizes galore. The “biker” fraternity will be doing the salute at the beginning when the survivors join everybody at the track. There will be a special lunch for the survivors and caregivers. The participants around the track will have a lot of fun with a lot of spot prizes up for grabs.
    At the heart of CANSA Relay For Life is the opportunity to celebrate cancer survivors, to remember those who have left us and create awareness about cancer.
    The day will end with the Luminaria Ceremony. This is to honour and reflect on those that are no longer with us. Candles are lit inside paper bags and are placed around the relay track as glowing tributes to remember and honour loved ones who have passed or who are still fighting the disease. These candles remain lit throughout the Relay for Life until the closing ceremony.
