Sanlam raises funds for cancer
Sanlam Namibia recently handed over N$187 931 to the Cancer Association of Namibia (CAN) through its annual Sanlam Cancer Golf Challenge tournament. The tournament aims to raise funds for cancer patients.
On 10 September, Windhoek Country Club hosted the final of the annual Sanlam Cancer Challenge, the format of which was an individual. Sanlam Namibia was part of the national competition in which the golfing community did its part in helping the Cancer Association of Namibia fight the disease.
According to Wessel Kotze, Sanlam’s tournament coordinator for Namibia, all players paid an entry fee of N$60 with proceeds going directly towards cancer research.
The Sanlam Namibia Cancer Golf Challenge is held on golf courses countrywide and raises money for the fight against cancer, attracting more than 40 000 golfers annually both in Namibia and South Africa.
“Serious diseases such as cancer usually strike without any warning, and it is exactly at times such as these that you will need extra cash. Sanlam is available to help you in this regard in order to make the burden of the Cancer Association much lighter,” Kotze said.
The winners in the final also took part in the Cancer Challenge final which was held from 23 to 26 October at Sun City in South Africa.
