Dress up your takkies in aid of CANSA

Why not brighten up your everyday, plain takkies with bright laces or stickers in aid of CANSA.

The Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) invites all to brighten up their shoes or takkies on Friday May 27, by paying their ‘Tekkie Tax’.

The fundraising campaign entails ordering the ‘Better Together Tekkie Tax’ sticker at R10 from the nearest CANSA Care Centre or lacing your takkies up with a set of the uniquely branded Tekkie Tax shoelaces, sold at R35 and get a ‘Better Together Tekkie Tax’ sticker included.

Anita Snyders, CANSA’s National Sustainability Manager says in a press release: “We’re ‘Better Together’, because with your help CANSA’s reach can be so much wider, and more people educated regarding the impact of cancer.

“Funds raised go towards our health programmes educating communities about the importance of cancer screening and lowering cancer risk. Education is key to detect cancer early and improve treatment outcomes.”

Tekkie Tax orders can be placed with your local CANSA Care Centre, visit the CANSA website to find one closest to you.

The support of this fundraising initiative will assist CANSA to continue to effectively educate communities about cancer, lowering personal risk and accessing affordable cancer screening.

“Make sure you are ready to celebrate Tekkie Tax with CANSA on Friday May 27 and show that you care about educating to save lives. And please share your participation on your social media platforms using the hashtag #TekkieTax #CANSAeducation,” Ms Snyders concluded.
