This all-expenses paid trip is sponsored by Sun International.
All funds raised by participating golf clubs will be used to support the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA’s) fight against cancer, through Research (R6m spent on cancer research every year), Education (cancer awareness campaigns and early detection – CANSA’s fleet of mobile health units travel to very remote areas to conduct cancer screening) and Support (with the help of 5,000 volunteers, CANSA offers support to more than 45,000 people affected by cancer in more than 500 communities across South Africa.)
