A strong part of the DareDevil run is the cancer messaging, educating and encouraging men to know more about cancers affecting them specifically. There’s an incredible vibe and seeing how men are there for their mates or a family member or someone they know who is affected by cancer. And also how there are many boys who come and take part with their Dad or big brother so it becomes a super important health message for families. CANSA is there to provide screening.

Op vanjaar se Wêreld Kankerdag (4 Februarie) voeg KANSA hul stem by die volgende boodskap wat die wêreldwye gemeenskap uitdra: wie jy ook al is – familie, vriend, kollega, kankeroorwinnaar, leier, gesondheidswerker, student, werknemer of werkgewer – jy beskik oor die vermoë om aktief saam te werk om ‘n kankervrye wêreld te skep. Die doel van die uitdaging aan almal is: ‘begin waar jy is, gebruik wat jy het en doen wat jy kan’ om ‘n verskil te maak in die stryd teen kanker. Vra jouself af: ‘Wie is ek?’ en “Wat kan ek doen?” Streef daarna om bewustheid van kanker te verhoog en om die risiko van kanker vir jou persoonlik en vir jou gemeenskap te verlaag.
