The Lace Up for Cancer race that annually takes place around World Cancer Day was put on hold during the Covid-19 pandemic. Relaunched in February 2023 in the Winelands, this popular event is back in the Cape Town seaboard in 2024 and taking place during the Cape Town 10’s event on Saturday, 3rd February.
“Cape Town 10’s are not only loaning us their infrastructure, but also allowing ticket buyers for Lace Up for Cancer to participate in the festivities around Cape Town 10’s. This gives so much added-value to participants, as they can listen to the live music, get food from the stalls
and join in the festivities for Cape Town 10’s. Our message of celebrating cancer survivors, remembering those that have gone, and supporting organisations that focus on cancer support, is taken to an even higher ‘live-life’ level.“
Leigh Meinert, Advocacy and Operations Manager of the APCC
“The ticket prices will be R250-00, which will include access to the Play co.za Cape Town 10s event and an orange cap (a bargain as access to the 10s is R350). We were well along the way on planning the 10s when we spoke to the APCC and Cancer Alliance. Since we are an organization that likes to focus on making people’s lives better, it was a natural extension of our event to offer to include Lace Up for Cancer in our race registration and ticketing platforms. Everyone has been touched in some way by cancer, whether directly or indirectly, and both organisations do such incredible work in supporting cancer patients and their loved ones. It is our honour that we can provide them with our support.”
Gerhardi Odendaal, CEO of Old School Group and the 10s Series
