Capetonians support CANSA when you #RunYourCity this Mother’s Day

When registering online for the Absa RUN YOUR CITY CAPE TOWN 10K (taking place on Sunday 12 May 2024), participants, whether they’re running or walking, can support the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) by making an immediate donation towards this meaningful cause.

A non-profit leader in the fight against cancer since 1931, CANSA enables research, educates the public and advocates for and supports all people affected by cancer, while leading SA towards a cancer-free society.

“We are honored to have CANSA as the official charity of the Absa RUN YOUR CITY Series in 2024,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports and Series Founder. “CANSA fulfils a crucial role in our society, providing vital support and resources to those affected by cancer. We are proud to be able to show our support, while giving entrants the opportunity to do the same. The representatives from CANSA recently had their first taste of the Absa RUN YOUR CITY Series at the first event of the season in Gqeberha. We trust that it was a memorable one and that they are looking forward to the second event which will take place in the Mother City.”

“Although part of a series, each of the five events is unique in its own right, and we can’t wait for the CANSA Representatives to experience this,” continues Meyer. “Your presence in Gqeberha was inspiring, and we are thrilled to continue the excitement by introducing you to the Absa RUN YOUR CITY CAPE TOWN 10K. To every entrant, you too can make a difference by supporting CANSA during the online entry process. No donation is too small. Together, we can make a difference in the fight against cancer.”

“CANSA supports communities across South Africa, and we were privileged to be part of the Gqeberha event, with the opportunity to raise awareness and share our service offerings with the assistance of our CANSA Gqeberha staff and volunteers,” says Leillani Geduld, CANSA National Corporate Relations & Sporting Events Manager.

“The energy and vibe were terrific and CANSA received a very warm welcome from all event sponsors, partners, and participants. We’re charged and ready to bring the CANSA Active ‘Feel Good Fun’ vibe to the Absa RUN YOUR CITY CAPE TOWN 10K on 12 May. Our CANSA Active Champions are preparing for the 10km run and actively promoting the event and creating awareness around CANSA’s services to the public.”
