The Working on Fire Ficksburg team recently participated in Relay For Life, a unique event hosted by the Cancer Association of South Africa (CAN SA), and the largest cancer engagement and fundraising activity in the world!

The team supported the initiative by walking around a track for an entire night.

The event which was held in Ficksburg to create awareness about cancer and its devastating effects on society.

The Relay For Life not only offers communities the opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer, but it commemorates those lost to cancer, while representing the hope that those who are fighting cancer will be supported and that one day cancer will be eliminated.

Ficksburg Base Communications Representative Mphatswe Motete says, “It was really a privilege for our team to participate in the relay. Our team’s fitness level is high and this enabled us to complete the 12-hour relay.”
