More than 20 representatives from DPAS put their best foot forward on 29 September when they took part in the 10km Mouth Cancer Awareness Walk 2013. The team included members from all departments, including the majority of the management team.
The event, now in its eighth year, saw Team DPAS join many other fundraisers for a 10km walk around Hyde Park in order to raise awareness of the symptoms of head and neck cancers. In total, over 600 people took part and Team DPAS managed to raise over £1,200, with donations still being received.
Sam Brice, Marketing Manager at DPAS, said: “Mouth Cancer kills one person every 3 hours in the UK because of late detection. The work that the Mouth Cancer Foundation is doing in terms of education about screening and public awareness of the symptoms is tremendous and such a high profile event can only help to create a better understanding of the disease. DPAS is proud to be associated with this organisation.”
