This year, the various “Life Cycles” raised more than 2.2 million euros for the Cancer Foundation. Proceeds from current events go mainly to scientific research into cancer and social care projects.
There are currently €2,278,000 in proceeds, and the amount is still growing due to the continued influx of donations. This year, a total of 30 Journeys for Life were conducted across the country. There were 33,500 participants and 100,000 visitors.
During a lifetime relay, teams take turns 12 or 24 hours during a relay around the course. They also allow themselves to be taken care of. There is at least one team member on the slopes at all times. The message stated: “During the events, cancer turns into an event full of feelings, hope, solidarity and positive energy.”
All proceeds from Relay for Life go to the Cancer Foundation. It applies mainly to supporting scientific research. There is also funding for projects aimed at improving the quality of life of patients and their loved ones, especially in settings where life cycles take place. The foundation also focuses on prevention (healthy lifestyle) and screening.
The Cancer Foundation will kick off the new season of Relay for Life in April.
