CEOs Against Cancer
Join our community of athletes who are channelling their passion for sports towards doing good. These individuals push themselves not for personal fulfilment, gleaming medals, or public recognition but to improve the lives of those impacted by cancer.
Since 2009, a host of sportsmen and women have dedicated their passion for running to saving lives. Each year, they participate in running events throughout the year, with the aim to raise funds to sustain the Society’s programmes and services. Each mile conquered and every dollar raised gives our beneficiaries a hope for tomorrow.
Our athletes come from diverse backgrounds. Some run for a loved one who has cancer. Others run after recovering from cancer. Learn more about our athletes by clicking on their fundraising profile pages. Follow them as they share their training schedules and events that they’re participating in.
