Mark vs Marc – Shaving and Spraying Cancer to the Ground

19 February 2013 – The gloves are off in the fight against cancer and it’s no longer a question of whether to support CANSA or not – but how. This year is CANSA’s 10th annual Shavathon and each and every South African is urged to make a choice: Shave or Spray.

In the one corner is cancer survivor, Mark Pilgrim with his shaven head – in the other, Marc Lottering and his trademark dreads in various colours, who lost his dad to cancer. Which side will you join in taking on the common enemy?

Marc says he’s hanging on to his locks: “It’s a ‘bald’ move to shave everything off – ‘coloured’ is lekker!” And with CANSA’s new colour hair gel, together with the sprays and stencils, those joining Marc can really create all kinds of colourful looks and styles in support of cancer survivors. Marc invites you to join Shavathon here…

Mark, on the other hand, makes it clear where he stands: “This whole Mark VS Marc thing is going to be a close shave – hair is going to fly.” Shavathon volunteers are standing ready at shopping centres countrywide on 2 March to give those rallying behind Mark a number 1 shave in aid of raising funds for CANSA’s service to the public and all people affected by cancer – read more…

For a small donation of R50 you can shave or spray your hair at your nearest shopping centre. Children under 12 only donate R25. The only question remains: To join Mark or Marc? Join both and double your support of CANSA Shavathon and shave your head before spraying it! Corporate and workplace Shavathons will take place for a whole week this year, from 25 February to 1 March.

Mark Pilgrim has been a loyal supporter of CANSA and CANSA Shavathon for many years, and this year Marc Lottering lent his own well-known voice for CANSA’s radio and tv ads, with singing sensation band Mi Casa’s hit song, ‘These Streets’ as the soundtrack.

“We want to thank our sponsors, shopping centres and workplaces for their love and work, as well as all the Marks and Marc’s out there who selflessly support Shavathon to help make a difference in the lives of cancer survivors,” says cancer survivor and CANSA CEO, Sue Janse van Rensburg. We invite you to participate in Shavathon 2013 – watch our TV ads in partnership with SABC 2…
