Walk For Life is an annual walkathon organized by CanSupport to raise awareness about rising incidence of cancer in India and to show solidarity with those suffering from cancer. Since 2008, the walk aims to create awareness around cancer and palliative care in the country. Along with this, it also aims to show solidarity with cancer patients and their care givers.
CanSupport’s ‘Walk for Life; Stride Against Cancer’ event has become a much talked about and awaited annual feature of the Delhi calendar.
Now in it's 11th year, the walk aims to create awareness around cancer and palliative care in the country. Along with this, it also aims to show solidarity with cancer patients and their care givers.
People from all walks of life, representing different age groups and professions: students, executives, cancer survivors, medical professionals, caregivers, celebrities, bureaucrats, politicians, expatriates and diplomats, among others, walk or run together for one common cause to fight against cancer.
