Cancer awareness walk today

To create awareness about cancer, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s wife Gursharan Kaur will flag off the “2013 Walk for Life” at India Gate here on Sunday at 8.45 a.m.

People from all walks of life will walk down Rajpath to demonstrate that they care and support the work being done for neglected cancer patients. The participants will be joined by Health Minister A.K. Walia, Member of Parliament Navjot Singh Sidhu and former athlete Milkha Singh. Apart from raising funds for CanSupport’s palliative and supportive care services, the walk will alert people about the rise in the number of cancer patients and honour the memory of those who have succumbed to the disease.
