The Igazi Foundation will be this year’s Algoa FM Big Walk for Cancer beneficiary.
Funds raised will be used to purchase a fogger, industrial washing machine and scales which will be used in the stem cell unit in Port Elizabeth.
Covid-10 has made the need for the equipment to ensure that patients undergoing treatment are kept in a sterile environment more pressing, according to Cole Cameron, CEO of the Igazi Foundation.
“We are happy to be part of this of this years Virtual Big Walk for Cancer. As the only services and education NGO for haematology in the country, this is a platform for us not only to raise cancer awareness but also the awareness of blood cancer,” he says
“Our team and a number of survivors will be walking this October with the hopes of raising funds for our foundation,” he adds.
The virtual Algoa FM Big Walk for Cancer in partnership with the Eastern Cape Department of Health will be taking place on Saturday, 31st of October 2020. Participants are encouraged to walk around their neighbourhood in support of those who have been affected as well as infected by cancer.
