The Virtual Algoa FM Big Walk for Cancer

Exciting news is that the Eastern Cape’s biggest charity event, the Algoa FM Big Walk for Cancer presented by the Eastern Cape Department of Health, will still be hosted in 2020 – as a virtual event.

Participants are encouraged to dress in pink and take a 5km walk around their neighbourhoods on Saturday, 31 October 2020, in support of everyone who has been affected by cancer.

“For the first time, this legacy event reaches beyond the city. Together with those affected by cancer we will be able to celebrate every step on the road to recovery and healing, anywhere in Algoa Country,” says Algoa FM marketing manager Lesley Geyer.

This year the beneficiary is the Igazi Foundation, which will use the funds to purchase equipment needed to be able to continue treating blood cancer cases in the Eastern Cape.

For more information please visit the Algoa FM website, www.algoafm.co.za.
