Survivor’s Walk of Hope

Endorsed by Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, this 5km walk seeks to spread the message of hope in support of cancer-patients and individuals grieved by the disease. To conclude the day, cancer survivors and other participants can leave a mark of encouragement by placing their hand prints on a portrait of the Archbishop Emeritus. The event also offers a unique team building opportunity for corporates. All proceeds contribute towards improving the quality of life for children facing life-threatening and terminal illnesses.
