Algoa FM calls Big Walk for Cancer 2020 Beneficiaries applications

Algoa FM invites all non-profit cancer organisations to apply to be the beneficiary for the Big Walk for Cancer 2020.

The Algoa FM Big Walk for Cancer is the biggest mass participation event in the Eastern Cape, and raises funds for non-profit cancer organisations supporting cancer patients and their families within the province.

Some 13 320 Participants came together and celebrated every step in the 2019 Algoa FM Big Walk for Cancer. This helped the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) Eastern Cape buy a transporter for their patients to transport them to and from the treatment centres in the city of Port Elizabeth.

The Algoa FM Big Walk for Cancer will take place on Saturday, the 31st of October 2020.

It will be the 22nd Algoa FM Big Walk for Cancer, and the first to be primarily a virtual walk due to social distancing requirements. 

“This is an event that we pride ourselves in as most people are affected directly or indirectly by cancer, and for us, as a community, to come together in support is very important”, says Algoa FM Marketing Manager, Lesley Geyer.

“We look forward to receive the applications and to help yet another organisation”, she says.

The requirements for beneficiaries are spelled out in the application form. Application guidelines can be found on the Algoa FM website. Charities should also indicate what the funds will be used to purchase. 

The closing date for the entries is Wednesday, 8th July, 2020.
