The Cansa Relay For Life 2009 launch took place on Friday, 29 May 2009 at Bolivia Lodge in Polokwane.
Close to a 1000 people celebrated life, remembered those not with us anymore, our survivors confirmed that they are fighting back with the support of family, friends and the Polokwane community.
Ramakone Moloto, Eileen Schofield & Ed Hillary shared their personal experiences with the audience - we salute you.
Survivors, our own fighters, as always you made us proud. Jonita and team, this world is a better place because of people like you.

Topics that were covered to familiarise the learners with the adult world were:
The recession forces us to have a look at our buying habits and women, being the main purchasers of essential household products, are the first to adapt. “She checks price tags more carefully, goes swopping instead of shopping or shops in her closet, plants vegetables in the back yard, cans and freezes what she grows and believes it has never been more chic to be cheap” says Gigi Carroll, SVP/creative director at Draftfbc in an online magazine Marketing Daily's commentary.
It seems as if the Polokwane City Council has had enough of their wayward Municipal Manager.
At a council meeting this afternoon, Adv Letsepe Thubakgale was suspended pending an investigation into his handling of municipal affairs. The decision to suspend Thubakgale was unanimous.
The Executive Mayor, Thabo Makunyane said in his motivation of the proposal, that a municipal manager was an accounting officer and employee of the council. However, Thubakgale acted as if he was a politician.
The enthusiastic women of Cansa Polokwane Relay for Life 2009 created such a buzz that the first four guys already sacrificed their 12-month-old heads of hair for this good cause.
