The annual Cansa Relay for Life is always a special, and much anticipated event. Starting at 18:00 on Friday, teams walk through the night to show solidarity with cancer patients that often suffer with pain and discomfort in the darkest hours.
The luminaria ceremony, commemorating and remembering those lost to cancer, those suffering currently, and survivors of the dread disease, holds special significance for families, friends and loved ones.
As dawn breaks the next morning, teams walk their final lap, physically exhausted but encouraged and humbled by the sense of accomplishment, and being part of such a special event. As the doves are set free, you cannot help but be moved as your spirit soars with them.
This year the event was held at the grounds of Louis Trichardt High School on 13 March 2015. Teams did not disappoint with colourful and innovative themes, decorations and dress, and were kept in high spirits with live music performances, Zumba demonstrations throughout the night, and entertainment arranged by the Relay committee.
