Sunday, May 18, 2014. GWEN NUNEZ GONZALEZ Reporting: Hundreds of proud Belizeans in the Belmopan area made the meaningful walk against cancer on Saturday, May 17th, 2014 from Camalote Village to the City of Belmopan.
The Belmopan Cancer Society organizes this annual walk to bring awareness to Cancer and to provide support to those living with cancer and honour those family members who have died from some form of cancer.
Unlike other cancer walks, the Belmopan Branch of the Belize Cancer Society ensures that all the participants walk together instead of competing.
Mrs. Beverly Swasey, Chair of the Society, announced before the journey that walking together signifies unity and support for the cancer patients.
At the end of the walk all the participants gathered at the steps of the Independence Plaza in a bow formation to take a picture in honour of the occasion.
This year’s theme is “Cancer Facts Can Save Lives: Power Up”.
The society is also encouraging those who need support to contact the members at its office in the Red Cross Building.
“The Belmopan Branch of the Cancer Society is a Nonprofit Organization that helps cancer patients in Belmopan and surrounding communities, and creates awareness in the fight against cancer”.
They can be visited on their site as well http://www.belizecancersociety.org.bz
