Teeing off for cancer
The Sanlam Namibia Cancer Golf Challenge started in May this year, with close to 600 players from 13 golf clubs. The winners will now compete in the 36-hole National Finals from 20 to 21 October 2014 at the spectacular fairways of the Gary Player Country Club and Lost City Golf course in Sun City South Africa.
The primary aim of the Challenge is to raise funds for CAN, and Sanlam Namibia has since 2004 donated more than N$2 million for the fight against cancer. Local organiser, Wessel Kotze, said, “We are very proud of our players and stakeholders this year, especially Mona Klose from the Sanlam SFD Branch at Mariental who spearheaded a contribution of N$87,000.”
Tertius Stears, Group CEO of Sanlam Namibia said, “This project is only a success because of the concerted efforts of all the players, all the golf clubs and all the Sanlam Namibia employees in the country. We want to thank every person and club who contributed to this worthy cause.”
