About Campaignends 28 Jul 2016, 11:59 PM
Organised by the Singapore Cancer Society for the 8th year, the Singtel-Singapore Cancer Society Race Against Cancer 2016 raises funds for cancer treatment subsidies, welfare assistance, cancer rehabilitation, hospice care, free cancer screenings, research and public education initiatives.
37 Singaporeans are diagnosed with cancer each day.
1 in 3 dies of cancer.
Come alongside SCS to fight against cancer in the 8th Race Against Cancer by helping to raise funds for those who need our support.
SCS's mission is to minimise cancer and maximise lives through upholding the life and dignity of every person directly or indirectly impacted by cancer, journeying along with cancer patients through the different life stages, from early detection to end-of-life care.
Cancer is not always a death sentence, and we want to ensure that everyone in this journey, especially those facing financial difficulties have access to support and treatment they need.
