“Each season we target to encourage girls to pursue higher education through basketball, and also reach out to the sick, widows, orphans and the destitute. Authentic Medical Suppliers has come in at the right time when we are planning a national cancer awareness programme that will focus on problems women face with breast and cervical cancer,” said Moyo.
Authentic Medicals Suppliers managing director Russel Golden said his company decided to support the events due to passion the club has to help the cancer awareness programme.
Registration for basketball tournament is at K5 000 while for netball it is K3 000. The teams can register by calling 0884 531 609 or 09 99 777 682.
