Apollo Cancer Centres launches India's First Virtual Duathlon

Posted On: 2021-09-14 11:23:46 (Time Zone: UTC)

Apollo Cancer Centres, will be conducting India's first virtual Duathlon. Apollo D2D Duathlon 2021 - aims to create awareness, support and raise funds for the treatment of childhood cancers . In addition to raising awareness around Paediatric Cancer, Apollo's Dawn to Dusk(D2D) Duathlon also promotes the need for a healthy lifestyle to ensure a future with less cancer risk. All support raised through Apollo D2D Duathlon 2021 will give young cancer patients, identified by Apollo's team of oncologists, a chance to live and be the future we can all proudly look forward to.

In India, most children have the obstacle of not having access to proper resources and treatment resulting in higher mortality rates. Apollo aims to close this survival gap by raising funds to support and aid the children with Paediatric cancers, by allocating the needed resources and giving access to life-saving treatment. The proceeds from Apollo D2D Duathlon 2021 will directly go into addressing the need of the hour and securing a future for the children.

Dawn to Dusk Duathlon, D2D - is an initiative by like-minded souls with a dual vision - to contribute to a cause while promoting a healthier lifestyle through running and cycling. The event is supported & organized by Apollo Hospitals & Neville Endeavours Foundation, and managed by Show Space. Registrations are open till 14th Oct 2021.

Attending the launch event, Hon'ble Governor of Tamil Nadu, Shri. Banwarilal Purohit, said, "Amidst our everyday hustle, we tend to put our health in the back-burner. Just as we prioritize our work or our life, we have got to start prioritising our health as well. One of the major reasons contributing to cancer is obesity. Research highlights that obesity directly increases the chance of several cancers such as colorectal, post-menopausal breast, uterine, oesophagal, kidney, pancreatic and many more. Apollo's Dawn to Dusk Duathlon aims to support a worthy cause by raising funds to treat childhood cancers and provide them with a worthy and fit future. Run, Ride and save lives."

Commenting on the launch, Dr Prathap C Reddy, Chairman, Apollo Hospitals, said, "It gives me great pleasure in kick-starting this duathlon initiative. Pediatric or childhood cancers are the most treatable cancers provided immediate diagnosis and effective treatment. In most developed countries, every three out of four children survive, with about 80% survival rate." Our aim is to make 100% survival rate in India.

He further adds, "It is our vision and mission to protect the future - our children - by treating young cancer patients every year, through both diagnosis and advanced treatment from Apollo Cancer Centres, which offers the best cancer treatment in the world, right here in India."

Attending the launch, Ms. Preetha Reddy, Executive Vice Chairperson, Apollo Hospitals, said "Being the leaders in Cancer care we believe it is our responsibility to come forward and provide International standard in the treatment of pediatric cancers. Children as said earlier are the future of our country and it is our moral duty to protect them. We welcome you all to participate in Apollo Cancer Centres Duathlon and register for this noble cause to treat underprivileged children suffering from pediatric cancers.

Speaking at the launch, Neville J. Bilimoria, Founder of D2D Marathon Neville Endeavours Foundation, said "From the inception in 2012, D2D's primary objective is to promote a healthier lifestyle through running and cycling and to raise funds and bring awareness to the worthy causes. The 7th edition - Apollo D2D Duathlon 2021, in association with Apollo Hospitals aims to support and raise funds for awareness and treatment of childhood cancer.
