CANSA Relay For Life

04 and 05 February 2017
De Jager Sport Complex Oudtshoorn

1Relay For Life is a unique, challenging and fun way to raise money for Cansa in any community, large or small, and to raise awareness of cancer and the services delivered by Cansa.


This celebration is more than a fundraiser! It is an event that reaches into the community to bring together neighbours, friends, work associates and families to celebrate those who have survived cancer and remember those who have not. Cancer survivors are recognized during Survivors Lap and are involved in variety of activities.

The Relay For Life involves a team of walkers/runners and spinners (2-15 members per team) competing against each other to raise the most money for the Cancer Association of South Africa.

CANSA Relay For Life of Oudtshoorn will celebrate their 10th Anniversary at the De Jager Sport Complex on 4 and 5 February 2017. The event lasts from 16h00 Saturday afternoon to 06h00 Sunday morning. A luminaria ceremony highlights the evening’s activities as survivors are honoured and those who have not survived are remembered. The luminaria service will be held 20h00 on Saturday night.

Benefits to Your Company for participating in Relay For Life 2017, Oudtshoorn – Relay For Life raises funds for health initiatives, and that is great for your bottom line.

Spinning will be presented by certified Spinning Instructors during this event.
