How You Saving Lives:


This past Friday saw the launch of both the Arnold Golf Classic Series and the Going Longer for Cancer Challenge for the top 100 golf courses in South Africa.

 Brent Anderson from the Arnold Golf Classic together with his team ran an amazing day filled with an amazing competitive spirit and even the  excitement of the very first Arnold Golf Classic R 50 000.00 Hole in One won by deserved competitor. 

It was an awesome day filled with rivalry and lots of fun, ending off with a 5-Star Dinner hosted by the Country Club of Johannesburg and their brilliant staff! 

Cancer Heroes is the proud beneficiary of the Arnold Golf Series run by Brent Anderson and together we aim to change many lives this coming year!

Going Longer for Cancer launched in conjunction with the Arnold Golf Classic at Benoni Lake Country Club allowing members the ability to play their role in community support programs in a more informal setting while assisting Rob with his challenge. 

It was an amazing day and fun was had by all with monies raised going to assist the local communities with Cancer Education and access to cancer networks like the Cancer Alliance and all their partners.

The challenge and cancer programs will be jointly supported and run via live social media platforms and mobile apps to ensure as much exposure as possible.
