CANSA Shavathon 2017

Get Loud in Colour with the CANSA Shavathon at Suncoast!

SUNCOAST have once again partnered with the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) to host the annual CANSA Shavathon at SUNCOAST on Saturday, 25 February 2017 and Sunday, 26 February 2017!

The CANSA Shavathon is an annual event with the sole purpose of raising funds towards improving the lives of those affected by cancer. It’s one of South Africa’s most loved events that lets the general public show their solidarity for those living with cancer by shaving their head, spraying it with an array of colours or simply giving a donation.

This year’s theme for the Shavathon is ‘Loud In Colour’, a celebration of the loud message sent by participants who shave, spray or donate towards this worthy cause.

“We have been a partner of the CANSA Shavathon for a number of years, it is an event that has grown bigger and brighter over the years and we cannot wait for this year’s annual event” says SUNCOAST Marketing Manager, Louise Howell.

She goes on to say “We encourage all Durbanites to come out and have fun and most important of all, pledge your support for a worthy cause that assists members within our Durban community”.

Suncoast will be running an internal staff fundraiser encouraging the more than 1,300 staff to participate in the event on Friday, 24 February 2017 and donating R 5,000 to the Corporate Shavathon initiative.

The CANSA Shavathon takes place at Suncoast on Saturday and ends on Sunday, from 09h00 to 15h00; participation for adults at this year’s event is R 50 and R 25 for kids under the age of 12.
