Today marks the 20th World Cancer Day, the leading internal awareness day, led by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC).
This year's World Cancer Day's theme, 'I Am and I Will', is all about you and your commitment to act. The UICC believe that through our positive actions, together we can reach the target of reducing the number of premature deaths from cancer and noncommunicable diseases by one third by 2030.
Advanced Maintenance UK Ltd has been doing its part over the last few years, working together with Pancreatic Cancer Action for a number of years raising money to help save lives through early diagnosis. We faced the Tough Mudder in 2017 and 2019 raising over £10,000,000 and looks forward to its next fundraising event.
If you would like to get involved please visit www.worldcancerday.org/take-action where they can guide you on how you can make a difference. Each year, hundreds of activities and events take place around the world, acting as a powerful reminder that we all have a role to play in reducing the global impact of cancer. No time? Don’t worry, they have ideas that take 5 minutes, 1 minute and even just ‘1 hot second’.
