CANSA Shavathon (online)

Tue Apr 14, 08:00 - Mon Jun 15, 17:00


CANSA Shavathon is one of South Africa’s best-loved events in support of a very worthy cause, namely showing solidarity with those affected by cancer. Losing one’s hair is a common side-effect of cancer therapy – so shaving your head has become a symbolic gesture of support for cancer Survivors.

In 2020 we celebrated our 17th national CANSA Shavathon, but due to Covid 19 all of our events after the President's first address were cancelled. In a bid to think out of the box, recover some of the funds we lost, we will host our first ever virtual CANSA Shavathon.

For a donation of R50 (adult) & R25 (child) you will receive a R500 voucher from Carlton hair , redeemable in conjunction with anouther service such as a blow dry.

Shave your hair at home, remember no shorter than a Number 1 shave. Upload your video to the CANSA Shavathon Online Facebook event page or CANSA Cape Metro Facebook page with the hashtag #CansaVirtualShavathon

?Your support will allow us to continue providing our patient care services.

Please note at this time we are not able to accept hair donations.Get out your at home use shaver, cut your ponytail or colour your hair take a video or picture and upload to our Facebook event page.
