How was your weekend? Did you, by chance, see us at the CANSA Shavathon at Shelly Centre?
You really couldn’t miss us, especially once the Southern KZN Sharks Academy boys started to go to town with those Spray Cans!
Some of the boys showed a special talent for #ColouringHope as seen below!
The CANSA Shavathon is something we look forward to every year. It is a huge amount of fun for a really important cause!
This year we were blown away by all of the support we received from our community, raising just over R6000 over the course of two days!
Thank you, Chickens!
We shared space with our friends from SANBS who were running a Blood Drive, so of course we had to show our support for their cause and vice versa!
Survivors, Warriors, Community
Louw (Left), one of our friends from the Sharks Academy, was so moved by Elize’s story of her ongoing battle with Colon Cancer, and her everlasting love of Rugby, that he decided that she should be the recipient of 4 Complimentary Vouchers for any Super Rugby or Currie Cup game of her choice at Kingspark!
Sometimes we get so wrapped up in the vibe and are having such a great time raising funds and making new friends that it is easy to forget how devastating cancer really is, but the Shavathon is not all about colouring and shaving hair for CANSA.
This very special event is an amazing platform to raise awareness as well as an opportunity for Cancer Warriors, Survivors and Friends to open up about their personal experiences with this life altering illness.
We had 1 hair donation and shave in honor of a sister fighting Cancer and many other brave men and women who either Shaved, Sprayed or simply Donated because Cancer has affected their lives and the lives of their loved ones in some way or another.
Partners in Hope
A big Thank You to the boys from the Southern KwaZulu Natal Sharks Academy, who volunteered their weekend to the cause. They showed unbelievable passion and enthusiasm and, most importantly, a tremendous amount of compassion. We will be back, with the boys, next year!
We want to hear from you! Please leave us a comment if there is anything you would like to hear more about from us at Tiago’s!
