CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- Running for "cancer" and paying attention to cancer prevention and control need the joint efforts of the whole society. Last weekend, the 21st Beijing Hope Run (Chongqing Stop) and the 4th Chongqing Hope Run were held in Youth Square, Shapingba District.
This is the fourth year of Hope Run in Chongqing. Over the past four years, more than 5,000 caring people and dozens of caring enterprises have joined the Chongqing Hope Run. This year, nearly a thousand people who are engaged in or love social public welfare sports, as well as many people who wear special clothes, cancer patients and medical staff run for "cancer" again, praying for cancer patients and helping cancer prevention and research.
The "Hope Run" activity form was jogging, walking, running with unlimited kilometers, with no competition ranks. You don't need to reach the finish line. Everyone is a champion.
The “Hope Run” was started by Canadians in 1981 as a free run in memory of Terry Fox. In 1980, Terry Fox ran across Canada to raise money for cancer research with a prosthetic right leg after being amputated from bone cancer. The event has been held in 52 countries and regions around the world. In 1999, the “Hope Run” started its trip to China and became the largest charity fund-raising activity for cancer research in China.
In addition to running, the event also distributed small gifts such as science popularization foldout of cancer prevention and treatment, and "fat bear". Experts from the Gynecological Cancer Center, Breast Cancer Center, Oncology Department and other departments of Chongqing University Cancer Hospital participated in the free clinic to answer the relevant questions of tumor diagnosis and treatment for the general public on site.
