Countdown to Lace-Up for Cancer 2017

The Hospice Palliative Care Association (HPCA) and Cancer Alliance, in partnership with Cancer Care**, will be hosting the annual Lace-Up For Cancer Fun Walk / Run on Sunday, 5th February 2017 at the Green Point Track (Fritz Sonnenberg Road), Cape Town.

This will be the 5th instalment of what has become a favourite for fitness enthusiasts and people who have been affected by cancer, coming together to raise much-needed funds for various charities supporting cancer patients, survivors and their families.

“The event serves as an opportunity for the HPCA to meet one of its core objectives i.e. promoting quality in life, dignity in death and support in bereavement for all living with a life-threatening illness,” HPCA Communications officer, Eric Watlington, said.

The Cancer Alliance is the beneficiary of the event which is a collective group of non-profit organisations advocating for better care & support for cancer patients and their families. The organising committee has representatives from:

  • The Sunflower Fund
  • CHOC
  • Love Your Nuts
  • People Living With Cancer
  • HPCA
