There are two months to go until the start of the 12th annual Mouth Cancer 10KM Awareness Walk. 

The 27th July each year has been declared by the International Federation of Head and Neck Oncology Societies as World Head and Neck Cancer Day.  There are over 500,000 cases and 200,000 head and neck cancer related deaths globally each year. With greater awareness of the signs and symptoms to look out for some of these cases are preventable.

Come to this year’s Mouth Cancer 10KM Awareness Walk and you can take advantage of a free mouth cancer screening courtesy of Mouth Cancer Foundation Ambassadors, Mr Mahesh Kumar and Mr Bhavin Visavadia and their colleagues from London North West Healthcare NHS Trust.   All screeners have kindly agreed to give up their time for one day to help our charity.

As many of you will know we’re involved in a national GivaPound initiative, which throughout the next 12 months encourages everyone to give at least one pound to the campaign. The aim is to then see how much a £1 donation can turn into.

Time is running out to spend your old one pound coins as they’ve been replaced by the new twelve sided coins and will lose their legal tender status on 15th October 2017.

As many of you know the charity is supporting a brand new fundraising initiative called GivaPound, which has been set up by Mouth Cancer Foundation Trustee Mahendra Patel. This week Cancer Research UK is the latest charity to confirm its support. 

The countdown is on to the start of the charity’s next 10KM Awareness Walk in Hyde Park. At 12 noon on Saturday 30th September 2017 the horn will signal the start of the event.
