The CANSA Relay For Life event held its eighth annual event at Victoria Park High School earlier this year and boasted some promising outcomes and prospects for the cause in South Africa as a whole.

As per CANSA protocols all Relay checks and balances are to be completed by the 31st March each year, CANSA Port Elizabeth is therefore pleased to announce that the 2016 event achieved the following successes as a result of support from the Port Elizabeth Community:

  • 120 Survivors and Caregivers attended a Celebration Function
  • 900 Luminaria Bags were placed around the track honouring the Survivors and Remembering those who have lost their fight
  • 61 Teams consisting of 826 members took part in the overnight Relay – taking a stand and Fighting Back for One World One Hope
  • Approximately 850 visitors passed through the gates between 17h30 and 21h30
  • And an amazing amount of R261,406.22 was raised by the Port Elizabeth event in our tough economic times.
