RUN AGAINST CANCER is a charity run for indigent cancer patients under the auspices of Corridor of Hope.

According to the World Health Organization, cancer remains to be a leading cause of death worldwide. In 2008, it accounted for 7.6 million deaths (around 13% of all deaths). Around 70% of all cancer deaths occurred in low- and middle-income countries. A February 2012 report from the World Health Organization predicted that deaths from cancer worldwide will continue to rise to over 13.1 million in 2030.

In the Philippines, recent studies from 2008-2010 showed a steady increase in cancer incidence. A report also predicted that new cases of cancer will amount to roughly 82,468 new cases in both male and female. Unless we all take a step into the ugly picture and stand up to cancer, it might continue to cripple more families and claim more lives. The Corridor of Hope, the cancer support group of the country’s premier tertiary cancer center, St. Luke’s Medical Center, is both challenged and compelled to take the lead in standing up to cancer by running against it.
