Wanna make a difference? Walk, jog or run against cancer: Relay for Life Belgium

Comments0 comments

"Relay For Life is a life-changing event experienced with others for individual needs and shared Cancer-related goals." - Cindy Menache, Global Hero of Hope and volunteer.

Relay For Life is a festive event for all ages that focuses on solidarity and fund-raising for the fight against cancer.

Over 24 hours, the community members of a city, town or locality mobilise themselves in order to:

• Celebrate and pay tribute to people that have conquered cancer, and support those that are still fighting the disease;

• Remember people that have lost their fight against cancer and support those still fighting the disease;

• Stand united in the fight against cancer.

Sponsored teams relay for 24 hours. At least one member of the team must be present on the track at all times. The 24 hours are a symbol of the constant battle patients and their families must endure in the fight against the disease. Relay For Life is not a competition! But a gathering of communities united in the fight against cancer.

 

Relay For Life is the world’s biggest cancer fundraiser, helping to save lives from every form of every stage of every cancer. Join the Relay for Life in Belgium!

Relay For Life’s objective is to raise funds for the fight against cancer. These funds are remitted in full to the Foundation against Cancer, whose mission is:

•    To support scientific research financially;

•    To promote prevention and healthy lifestyles through awareness and education;

•    To provide social care to people affected by cancer, along with their families
