Sanlam Cancer Challenge

Sanlam Cancer Challenge

On Saturday, 13 April the Sanlam Cancer Challenge was played at Piet Retief Country Club to help raise funds for CANSA.

CANSA’s purpose is to lead the fight against cancer in South Africa by offering a unique, integrated service to the public which involves holistic cancer care and support to all people affected by cancer. CANSA is a-non profit organisation in the Cosmos district with about 26 towns in which it renders services.

Donated funds are distributed by CANSA by means of urgency to all CANSA registered patients. The Sanlam Cancer Challenge was a huge success and the club managed to raise R3 700-00 for CANSA. Results for the day were provided by Jaco Smit.
