Fedhealth IMPI Challenge KZN joins the Fight Against Cancer

The Fedhealth IMPI Challenge KZN joined the fight against cancer and supported the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA).

“We’re excited to be a partner of the Fedhealth IMPI Challenge in all three regions (Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg) as the events provide a super platform for CANSA to promote the CANSA Active programme,” says Stephan Brink, National Manager CANSA Active.  “CANSA believes in being active, healthy and having some ‘Feel Good Fun’ while raising awareness and funds for the fight against cancer in South Africa.  The IMPI Challenge is great because it involves everyone, not just the participants.  It’s a wonderful event to build team spirit and we believe that a balanced lifestyle is vital to lowering your cancer risk.”

“Just about every participant is affected by cancer in some way,” continues Brink.  “Through our participation we hope to give back to local communities, by providing information, care and support to cancer Survivors (patients), caregivers and loved ones, who might not have been in a position to receive support otherwise.  The funds raised through our involvement with the IMPI Challenge will go towards CANSA’s service delivery, particularly with regards to our care and support programmes which include counselling, support groups, medical equipment hire, wigs, prostheses, stoma products, and accommodation if patients are living far from treatment centres at our CANSA Care Homes.” Read the full media release
