  • 31 October 2020 - On the 31st of October, it's the CANSA Breast Cancer Awareness Run nationwide.  It's a virtual run so everyone anywhere can enter.  The local communities all over South Africa will aim to run together as a group to support each other and raise awareness towards this cause. With this event, they strive to raise funds to support a fellow Running Raspberry member, Reta Claasens, who is currently battling breast cancer, as well as raise funds towards the CANSA association. Through this initiative, they aim to inform the public of ways to prevent cancer, the early signs of cancer and of how many people have battled and overcame cancer.  For all the details of this event and to see how you can get involved, visit the FB page: "CANSA Breast Cancer Awareness Run"

  • Nothing is more important to the SANBS than saving lives and the youth is perfect to partner with us in saving even more.  As you may know, we currently have less than three days’ blood supply and urgently need to increase our stocks.  It’s up to us to get the ball rolling.  Ask young people around you between the ages of 16 and 35 to donate blood and help us get the word out by sharing #YoungBlood hashtag on social media.
