The Colours

CANSA Active chose the colour orange, for its identity, sportswear, gear and apparel. Orange represents energy and vibrancy – it ignites action and movement!  Orange is also a colour associated worldwide with caution. CANSA Active serves as reminder to reduce your cancer risk though exercise and physical activity.

CANSA Active has already established a national footprint with serious sportsmen and women as well as casual and volunteer sporting individuals participating in the CANSA Active colours at various national, regional and local events to raise cancer risk reduction awareness or raise funds for CANSA.  Read more about these initiatives.

National events where CANSA Active already has a presence include the Cape Town Cycle Tour; Sanlam Cape Town Marathon; Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon; Comrades Marathon; Telkom 94.7 Cycle Challenge, plus many more events countrywide.  Go here for more information.
