Shavathon

cool

Strength is born in the deep silence of long-suffering hearts; not amidst joy or comfort.

In an effort to inspire hope for those fighting cancer

The CANSA (Cancer Association of South Africa) Hosted a two hour(12h00-14h00) SHAVATHON near the student rec center.

This was a fundraising event for cancer patients. It was also to raise awareness of the increasing number of cancer in our society.

R50 is the normal fee but they accepted anything above or below that, students got their hair painted with colours of their choices.

Others shaved their hair in support of this initiative.

It was indeed a worthy cause.

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at a time of challenge and controversy.” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
