Cancer Golf handover

Statistics indicate that there has been a 29% increase in cancer cases over the past 5 years in Namibia, with breast cancer being the most prevalent.
This among other factors is the reason Sanlam is involved in the fight against cancer.
The Sanlam Cancer Golf Challenge has been in existence for 24 years with Sanlam joining in from day one. Every year, golf players from different golf clubs around the country compete in the local golf tournaments. From these tournaments the best players are then selected to compete at the finals in Sun City, South Africa.
This year Sanlam Namibia raised N$250 000 which was donated to the Cancer Association of Namibia on 23 November, to aid cancer research. The funds are raised through registration fees, sponsorships and auctions that take place at the different clubs.
Under the leadership of Mona Klose from the local Sanlam branch, the Mariental Golf Club managed to singularly raise almost 50% of the total, to the amount of N$114 000.
According to Wessel Kotze, Sales Support Manager: Affluent, “Sanlam created a platform that can contribute back to the community especially to those affected by cancer. With the sup-port of different golfers and sponsors, we were able to raise funds that will make a difference in other people’s lives. This is another way that we as a company show our support towards the health sector of society.”
Next year promises to be a year to remember, as the events hits its 25 year mark.
“A lot is in store for everyone and every club that participates, so make sure you are part of the experience,” Kotze concluded.
