About Race Against Cancer
Race Against Cancer
Singtel-Singapore Cancer Society Race Against Cancer (RAC) 2017 is a race to save lives – Organised by Singapore Cancer Society (SCS), Singtel-Singapore Cancer Society Race Against Cancer aims to raise funds for cancer treatment subsidies, welfare assistance, cancer rehabilitation, hospice care, cancer screenings, research, public education and cancer support group initiatives.
Funds raised will help to drive SCS Programmes and Services such as the SCS Cancer Care Fund, SCS Cancer Rehabilitation Centre, SCS Cancer Treatment Fund, SCS Help the Children and Youth Programme and the SCS Welfare Aid.
Taking place for the 9th year since 2009, Singtel-Singapore Cancer Society Race Against Cancer exists to make our statement against cancer, to minimise cancer and maximise life. No one should fight cancer alone - this event invites people of all walks of life to join in the fight and run alongside those who are impacted by cancer.
