And just like that our Mouth Cancer 10KM Awareness Walk from Home is over!
Despite the upheaval of 2020 – We did it! It’s been a whole 60 days of the Mouth Cancer 10KM Awareness Walk from Home! An incredible concept born as a backup option to our beloved, annual Hyde Park adventure. This walk has totally exceeded all our expectations. Everybody at the Mouth Cancer Foundation is thrilled and overwhelmed at the support received for plan B, especially in this climate. We would like to express our gratitude to each walker, and four-legged friend that took part. We also know behind every good 10 K hiker there is also a supportive family member, friend, sponsor and colleague cheering them on so extend our thanks to the support team as well.
The Mouth Cancer 10 KM Awareness Walk 2020, the only walk in the world dedicated to raising awareness of mouth cancer, has been a fantastic method of grabbing some much-needed attention. Even more so, at a time where dental practices are stretched, and the world is operating in a somewhat restricted manner.
Over 500 people have clocked up thousands of kilometres as many groups added their own creative spin on the event. There have been 10 K a day walks, fun challenges, stepping distances between meaningful landmarks around local areas and everything in between. We have loved seeing all the beautiful local beauty spots, scenic posts and personal triumphs on social media. Fantastic!
If you have completed your walk please email email@example.com with your details so we can send out your medal.
The most surprising thing about this year’s walk is seeing our fundraisers smash their targets. We had no idea how 2020 would pan out so to see the donations come in has been incredible. If you are collecting money to support the Mouth Cancer Foundation this year – Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
