About The Event

Beat Cancer… Beyond COVID19

Grace Cancer Run Is back, and this time virtually. Although the world is undergoing with pandemic situations, it is also necessary not to ignore cancer at any cost. Can we neglect cancer awareness in this time of covid19? And the absolute answer is NO. We would rather say the price of ignoring cancer can be heavy given that many presents in late stage. Hence let us just not focus our attention to covid but simultaneously keep wide awake to any symptoms which are unusual and report to the doctor at the earliest, because early detection saves lives. Yes, it is Good news that most cancers are curable with the advanced treatment but remember, this is possible only when we detect the tumor at the early stages. Unfortunately, most people are still unaware of this deadly disease and cannot recognize it until the tumor reaches the critical stages. So, it is paramount to bring awareness about cancer and save precious lives.

Covid times have made cancer to take back seat and people are presenting late. Let us bounce back to restore our health. 

“Let us not hide ourselves behind Covid instead Run for CANCER beyond Covid"

Officially, The Grace Cancer Foundation is organizing its third edition of Global Cancer Run with the theme ‘Beat Cancer…Beyond COVID-19’ and is warmly welcoming you to take part in the event and providing a platform for you to contribute to society in bringing awareness. Let us bounce back to routineness and make a worthy decision to participate in virtual run.
