Join us by participating in the International Women’s Virtual Race, an online solidarity run or walk that is donating all proceeds towards two impactful associations: the AWASUKA Program and the AECC (Spanish Association Against Cancer). By running with us, you are directly combatting and preventing the development of serious illnesses, such as cancer, especially for women globally.
Who is receiving your donation?
The AECC is a non-profit organization operating throughout Spain with the aim of leading Spanish society’s efforts to reduce the impact of cancer and improve people’s lives. The association consists of patients, family members, volunteers, collaborators and professionals.
How do they do this? The AECC educates on healthy behaviors, supports cancer patients through their journey, and conducts quality research on cancer topics.
Reducing cancer’s impact on society can only be achieved with a comprehensive approach, which is why the AECC cares for everyone’s health and stands by those affected while promoting quality research.
Toxic smoke inhalation is a global development challenge, silently killing an estimated 1.64 million people every year.
Did you know that in Nepal alone, 226,000 develop respiratory illnesses every year due to toxic smoke from indoor air pollution?
Women and children are disproportionately affected as cultural forces typically assign them to household chores, which in turn, perpetuate and heighten gender inequality in developing countries. This program is building smokeless kitchens in remote areas of Nepal, improving their living and health conditions & empowering them with more time to develop both personally and professionally.
