The Cancer Association of Namibia (CAN) invites the public to join in creating awareness in their respective communities by supporting the “National Spray A Thon” campaign this weekend.

The event will kick off in Windhoek on Saturday and the public has been invited to support this colour campaign by donating N$20 and have their hair sprayed at The Grove Mall and Maerua Mall from 09:00 to 12:00.

Additionally, Friday, 2 March, the CAN team together with various project partners will be at Windhoek traffic intersections to ‘Shake a Can for Cancer’.

“Please support our CAN Erongo team on Saturday, 3 March, at Woermann Brock in Swakopmund town centre and at The Dunes Mall in Walvis Bay,” Shaunn Van Heerden, Projects Coordinator at CAN said.

All proceeds from the 2018 event goes to the CHICA Fund that support the CHICA Interim Home, assisting childhood cancer patients financially and also to support the Ward 8 West Paediatric Oncology Ward at Windhoek Central Hospital.
