On Sunday, the 6 th of February, more than six thousand people from all walks of life, representing different age groups, professions and nationalities, came together to participate in CanSupport's Annual “Walk for Life-Stride Against Cancer” event.

Their purpose was to express solidarity with those facing cancer, to create awareness about how to reduce the risk of cancer, to honor the memory of those who have succumbed to the disease and to raise funds for CanSupport's much valued palliative care services.

The Walk was flagged off at 9 am by Krishna Poonia, India 's discus throw champion & winner of a gold medal at the Commonwealth Games 2010. A message was also read out on the occasion from Gursharan Kaur, wife of our Prime Minister, who continues to endorse the Walk. Padma Bhushan Analjit Singh, Chairman Max India, was the Guest of Honour.

The Walk continues to have a number of unique features which are widely appreciated:

•   A run over the same route as the Walk to drive home the message that daily exercise can help fight cancer.
•   A 'Lap of Honor' for cancer survivors to show that there is life after cancer and to support those currently battling with the disease.
•   A 'Wall of Honor' for writing messages to honor the struggle of those who have succumbed to cancer.
•   Many walk with sheets pinned on their backs with the names of their loved ones on them, or walk in groups in the memory of a dear one.
•   Children and adults on rollerblades lead the walk.
•   Balloons, prizes, music, dance and clowns add to the festive feel.


This year we also added the following features:

•   Vintage cars to ferry patients who could not walk or run.
•   Motorcycles that ripped and roared and heralded the Walk.


For CanSupport, it was a memorable morning that helped raise approximately Rs. 38 lakh for its free of charge Home Care & Day Care programmes as well as helped propagate the message that "There is life after cancer and every minute counts".
