About the Run
We, The Rotary Club of Cochin West are 49 year old and proudly the 2nd oldest club functioning at Cochin working for the upliftment and support of the down trodden ,poverty stricken poor needy people across the region. We are into many social and community related services, such as Blood donation drives, Organ donation awareness camps, Artificial Limb camps. Athletic meet for the differently abled children, and many more similar activities. Our primary objective is to particularly keep supporting patients affected by cancer since this is the latest and most aggressive form of threat to human lives spreading across the world at an alarming pace and a cause for deep misery.
One of Rotary’s dream projects was the construction of a chemo therapy ward at the Ernakulam District General Hospital which is a indeed a reality now and has served more than 15000 chemo’s over the past three years to several needy human beings. Our next earnest endeavour is another such project wherein we intend to support the female gender for an early cancer detection process to enable create awareness for quick and early detection and cure. Our initial target is to generate sufficient fund for this cause. To achieve this objective , we are organising a mega mass run scheduled for the 28th January, 2018 at Cochin. The run is scheduled to be conducted from Kalamassery - Decathalon to Cheranallur signal junction and back to Kalamassery covering a distance of 10 kms. Details of the programme is attached herewith for your ready reference.
We solicit your esteemed presence and blessings with your active participation and sincere contributions in terms of efforts and whatever forms of support possible.
Our quest is to conquer / eradicate CANCER … Come & Be a part of us to help us turn these dreams into reality.
