Blue Rock Village: Africa’s first green village puts its weight behind Breast Cancer Awareness in support of CANSA
Blue Rock Village is proud to announce its support and participation in the STBB 2Keep-a-Breast MTB Challenge. The event is hosted by South Africa’s leading law firm, SMITH TABATA BUCHANAN BOYES in support of CANSA, an organisation that works tirelessly to enable cancer research, educate the public and provide support to all affected by cancer.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. A woman can develop breast cancer at any time during her adult life and 1 in 10 South African women will. But as more women have mammograms and with increased awareness and education on the topic, rates of early detection are increasing.
The STBB2Keep-a-Breast MTB Challenge has become the most popular mountain-biking event in the Western Cape, attracting more than 2000 cyclist who love to ride the unique network of world class trails built into the Bottelary Hills conservancy which will also host, for the first time, a Twilight Trail Run this year. The aim of the event is to raise funds and all proceeds are donated to CANSA.
The event offersa spectacular post-event market with stalls, food, craft beer tent, wine tasting, music, and children’s entertainment.
