Speaking on the occasion Mr. V.C. Sajjanar
said,cancer disease is the cause for the second largest number of
deaths in the world. Each of us would know someone with cancer from within our
family and friends, so prevalent it has become, I lost my sister to the
disease. Sedentary lifestyle without any physical activity, lack of nutritious
diet, sleep deprivation are all reasons for cancer and it is high time we
create awareness about this dreaded disease. This run being conducted in
multiple cities will create enormous awareness about the disease across the
world. The Cyberabad and Telangana police will support this cause and will work
towards making it a success. We will also associate with the Foundation for
cancer screening of police force.   

Shilpa
Reddy

said, there is enough evidence today that a great lifestyle, proper eating
habits, a tranquil mind, does lot of good to your health. Being healthy is
feeling good from within, being holistic. Apart from eating healthy diet, eat
on time, sleep on time, not loading your mind with unnecessary thoughts Maintaining
mental and physical energy balance is extremely important, we should aspire for
that holistic balance to lead a happy life.   

 An avid marathoner Dr Hemanth Vudayaraju says, Running is the easiest way to stay fit,
something which comes naturally to each one of us, requires least in terms of
infrastructure and equipment and hence is the most uncomplicated way to yield
sustaining health benefits. In the west every major city marathon has a huge
number of charity runners and cancer related charities being the foremost. Late
diagnosis is the bane of cancer in India and that’s because of lack of
awareness about cancer.

Cancer RUN 2019 is an
opportunity to challenge yourself, set new limits and reduce your cancer risk
by being physically active. This is a race to save lives, organized by Grace
Cancer foundation. Grace has been relentless in its efforts to create awareness
about cancer and aims to save lives in the long run. No one should fight cancer
alone, this event invites people of all walks of life to join in the fight and
run alongside those who are impacted by Cancer
, says Dr Chinnababu
Sunkavalli
. Cancer is curable if detected early and they don’t just survive but
Conquer the disease. This run is in support of People who fought this disease,
he
adds.
