To commemorate International Childhood Cancer Day which falls on the Feb 15 next year, the Sarawak Children’s Cancer Society (SCCS) is collaborating with OurYouth.my again to organise their second five km public awareness run.

 

After the success of the first public run last year where they managed to attract 1,200 participants, the members of OurYouth.my are eager to get more than 2,700 runners this year. In addition, they will also be holding this event in Miri for the first time next year.

 

With the aim of raising awareness and getting more funds for childhood cancer in Sarawak, the members of OurYouth.my are also hoping to encourage the public especially the younger generations to participate in this event.

 

Through this event, they are hoping to raise RM100, 000 for children with cancer. Moreover, through this event, they are hoping to get create more awareness, compassion as well as empathy towards children with cancer.

 

“Cancer is now treatable,” said Dr Charles Leh, secretary of SCCS.
