20th Anniversary Video: Simon Clark Explains How Shavathon Began

It took quite a bit of hustling, negotiating and hard work to get the first Shavathon off the ground. Fortunately for CANSA, Simon Clark persevered and in 2003 events were held at 50 venues in Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth). Thank you Simon for the initiative you took – Shavathon is now a firm favourite on the South African calendar and well loved by all affected through cancer.

Simon’s message to everyone: “If you are thinking about it, just do it – stop talking, get out there and do it, that’s when great things happen!”
