FAQ


Why Walk For Life?

What is the purpose of the Walk For Life?

The Walk For Life is an event through which general public can express their determination to fight the curse of cancer  and express solidarity with those facing cancer in our society by walking or running and making a small contribution to the work of CanSupport.

How will the Walk For Life generate awareness about cancer?

If a large number of people turn out to walk or run it will attract the attention of the media who will report it in the press and on National TV. It will thereby provide an opportunity to showcase people who have had cancer and are now well which will in turn encourage people to have regular checkups and catch cancer early. Interviews with representatives of CanSupport will also help explain the work being done by CanSupport so that more people can avail of its free of charge services and call the helpline to answer any of their queries.
