The ninth edition of the annual Singtel-Singapore Cancer Society Race Against Cancer (RAC) is back again on Sunday, the 30th of July.
A Race to Save Lives
A race to save lives, the RAC, organised by the Singapore Cancer Society (SCS), aims to raise funds for cancer treatment subsidies, welfare assistance, cancer rehabilitation, hospice care, cancer screenings, research, public education and cancer support group initiatives.
Funds will help to drive SCS programmes and services, such as the SCS Cancer Care Fund, SCS Cancer Rehabilitation Centre, SCS Cancer Treatment Fund and the SCS Welfare Aid.
SCS hopes to make a statement against cancer
Through the race, the SCS hopes to make a statement against cancer, that is, to minimise cancer and maximise lives.
This is because SCS strongly believes that nobody should be left to fight cancer alone so the race invites people from all walks of life to join in the fight and run alongside those who have been impacted by cancer.
So the RAC aims to raise awareness and the services which SCS provides and rallies the community to join in the fight against cancer.
A cause that I hold close
Since my mother had been diagnosed with brain cancer in August 2014, the importance of making a statement against cancer, is a cause that I have since held close to my heart.
