The Global Walk to Flatten the Cancer Curve officially started on June 30th, 2021 and culminates at the SWCRF’s 17th Annual Hamptons Happening. The virtual walk will raise international awareness and funds for life-saving cancer research. Participants will log their steps during the 11 days with the aim of accumulating 25,000 miles, enough to travel around the world.
The incidence of cancer is rising around the world and advanced age is the most significant risk factor. More than 60 percent of Americans diagnosed with cancer are 65 and older. SWCRF, in collaboration with the National Cancer Institute and National Institute on Aging, is leading the way in funding the scientists who are working towards the next breakthrough in cancer treatments. Currently, SWCRF is funding 50 renown investigators on three continents, each working together to develop less toxic cancer treatments.
