From sunrise to sunset on Saturday, 31 October, people from across Bloemfontein and the Free State can dress up in pink and take part in Shades of Pink, CANSA’s virtual 5 km walk.

Players of the Cheetahs rugby team will also take part in the virtual walk to show their support for the cause.

“Cancer touches the lives of one out of every four South Africans every year,” says Marike Simkin, CANSA’s fund development coordinator in the Free State.

“CANSA’s roll is to support cancer patients and their families. Help is given by way of emotional support, and through the offering of different aids, like wigs. Patients can also stay at House Olea during treatment.”

According to Simkin, special projects are held to make the public aware that early detection could improve the efficiency of treatment.

“One of these projects is the yearly Breast Cancer Walk in October, where people all over South Africa can show their support for patients with breast cancer. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this year’s event will be a virtual walk. Participants can therefore choose their own route.”

Local participants have the option of completing the 5 km at Be Human at Middelwater and buying unique Shades of Pink products. CANSA’s pink tractor, on which people can take a ride for a small donation, will also be at Middelwater.

Tickets cost R50 for adults and R30 for kids. Combo packs, which include a registration fee and T-shirt, are also available.

Call Simkin on 082-637-9485 or send an email to msimkin@cansa.org.za. Tickets are also available at CANSA’s office in Melville Drive, Brandwag.
