ABOUT CANCER COUNCIL'S THE MARCH CHARGE
One third of cancers can be prevented through living a healthy lifestyle. That means having a healthy diet, being physically active every day and maintaining a healthy body weight. This year in Australia, that’s 38,000 cancer diagnoses we could avoid by prevention alone.
In response to this knowledge, we created Move Over Cancer – a brand of Cancer Council challenge events encouraging people to get active, and beat cancer. The March Charge is our launch event and is taking place in March 2015.
We’re taking a head on approach to beating cancer and for the whole month of March we’re running at it, not from it.
By taking part and challenging yourself to run as many KMs as you can - you’ll be reducing your cancer risk, promoting physical activity and helping to raise vital funds for cancer research, prevention, advocacy and support.
HOW IT WORKS
- Enlist - sign up and set your personal running goal
