CANSA’s 17th national SHAVATHON takes place on Saturday, 29 February. The theme is ‘Hope 2020’, participating provides an opportunity for everyone, young or old, to be involved in Colouring Hope, by spraying or stencilling their hair, or shaving their head, or donating a ponytail that will go towards making a wig for a cancer survivor.
It is a time to laugh, have fun, reflect, shed a tear, to be thankful, and to pay respect to those fighting cancer, alongside others who are similarly affected.
Adults donate R50 and children under 12 years donate R25 to participate. Funds received go towards CANSA’s care and support programmes for patients, caregivers and loved ones.
