The Mouth Cancer Foundation has released details of its fourth annual 10km sponsored walk.
The walk, to raise much-needed awareness of the disease, is being held on Saturday 26 September 2009 at 2pm in Hyde Park, London.
A website has just been set up – www.mouthcancerwalk.org – where people can sign up to take part in the event.
The founder of the Mouth Cancer Foundation, Dr Vinod Joshi, is encouraging dental, medical and healthcare practitioners, as well as friends and family from all over the UK, to sign up and take part in the free 10km walk.
He said: ‘Last year’s walk was a huge success; we are really excited about the fourth annual walk this year. This walk is a great opportunity for mouth cancer survivors, their families and friends, the public and health professionals to come together in a fun outing that will make a big noise in Hyde Park London about mouth cancer, loud enough for everyone to take notice. Costumes are invited if you’re feeling brave!’
There will be free mouth cancer screening on the day, plus prizes available for top individual and team fundraisers as well as top individual and team awareness raisers.
Money raised from the walk will help the Foundation improve its support for patients and carers.
