Link to Life, The Cancer Support Centre, is a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) that was founded in 2002 in Mauritius, offering unwavering support to people suffering from any type of cancer. In Mauritius, cancer is the third leading cause of death after cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. Link to Life helps Mauritians on a daily basis to fight cancer through its various therapeutic and psychological services, as well as information and prevention campaigns organized across the island.
To raise funds to fight against cancer and awareness of this scourge, Link to Life and a couple of inveterate walkers, Ruby and Dave, are organizing a charity walk around Mauritius from 19 to 26 August, 2022. The Cancer Charity Walk is an 8-day challenge which aims to help cancer patients (adults) to benefit from the free transport service provided by Link to Life so that they can continue and complete their cancer treatment in hospital seamlessly. Mauritians will be able to follow the cancer charity walk on social and other media platforms which will be covering this event.
