What is Walk Away Cancer ?​

WalkAway Cancer is an awareness walk that started in 2014 and has since grown into Nigeria's largest cancer fundraiser and a powerful advocacy platform for cancer patients and their caregivers. It also serves as a networking opportunity for cancer care professionals and a day of fun and exercise for the whole family. ​​​

CEO's MESSAGE

The civil society space is more vibrant, with each addressing various cancers across the spectrum of disease. We have hosted local and international meetings, embarked on new research, supported various fundraising initiatives and so much more. The impact of all these initiatives remains one- to lower the incidence of cancer in Nigeria.

Looking ahead, I am excited to share that our upcoming 5KM Walk Campaign, scheduled for October, promises to be an extraordinary event. This campaign is not just about walking; it's about taking strides towards a future where cancer holds no power over our loved ones. It's a declaration of unity, a celebration of survivorship, and a stand against this formidable foe.

As we lace up our shoes and prepare to walk away cancer this year, we will be raising awareness, funds and hope. support to those in the throes of their battles.

The 5KM Walk Campaign embodies our collective strength and determination to make a positive impact in the fight against cancer. I invite each and every one of you to join us in this journey . Whether you're a survivor, a caregiver, a healthcare professional, or simply someone who cares deeply; together we can change the narrative. With gratitude and anticipation,
