Grey College Old Boys Do It Again for CANSA Active

On Sunday 13 March 2022, a group of 40 Grey College, Bloemfontein, old boys are riding the Cape Town Cycle Tour to create awareness and raise funds for the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) and Diabetes South Africa (Diabetes SA).
“We chose CANSA because various Old Grey’s, and some of their family members, are living with cancer. In 2020, Raymond van Niekerk (old Grey boy and former Global Head of Marketing for Investec) was part of our team. Raymond had stage four kidney cancer and diabetes, at the time, and finished the race on an e-bike.”
