Run Against Cancer

(Press Release) Cancer remains a leading cause of death worldwide according to the World Health Organization.  In 2008, it accounted for 7.6 million deaths (around 13% of all deaths).  About 70% of all cancer deaths occurred in low and middle income countries.  Deaths from cancer worldwide are projected to continue to rise to over 13.1 million in 2030.  (Source)

In the Philippines, recent studies from 2008-2010 showed a steady increase in cancer incidence.  It is also predicted that new cases of cancer will amount to roughly 82,468 new cases in both male and female.  (Source)

Unless we all step into the ugly picture and stand up to cancer, it might continue to cripple more families and claim more lives.

It is for this reason that the Corridor of Hope, the cancer support group of the country’s premier tertiary cancer center, St. Luke’s Medical Center, is both challenged and compelled to take the lead in standing up to cancer by running against it.

Run Against Cancel is a charity run for indigent cancer patients under the auspices of Corridor of Hope.  To be held on 20 April 2013, 4:30 AM, at the Bonifacio Global City Grounds in Taguig City, the fundraising event aims to garner support from allied medical practitioners, corporate partners, other cancer support groups, and cancer patients’ families and friends.
