Stride4life has 3 aims:

  1. To raise as much money as possible to help men, women and children who are fighting Cancer. The 1st Stride 4 Life was held in July 2004. At the same time the hospital set up the Cancer Fighting Fund. This fund purchases equipment to assist specifically in the detection, diagnosis and treatment of all cancers by introducing the latest technology to give the very best possible care to cancer patients.  

  2.           
  3. To provide a family day out with something for all ages through our Fun Day. The day ends with a Balloon Release with everyone releasing their balloons together in the Arena:

    • to celebrate and remember the life of a loved one

    • to celebrate the recovery of someone and give thanks for a saved life

    • to celebrate a new life.

  4. It engages the local community with so many people volunteering their time to a good cause.

                

There are over a 100 volunteers who make this event possible, by coming along on the day and helping set up, run stalls and help clean the field at the end of the day. Valley Park Radio are there every year with their PA System, compering the days activities, interviewing walkers and creating a great atmosphere through providing a soundtrack on the day. The trasmission is relayed to the hospital’s patients, making them a part of the day as well.

 

A big thank you to you all for everything that you have done to achieve this magnificent amount which has helped men, women and children who are fighting cancer.
