Malta’s singing doctor Gianluca Bezzina will be leading a the CC Cancer Foundation fundraising walk next week on Sunday 17th November.
Alan Cuschieri, Director at Calamatta Cuschieri, who was one of the main catalysts behind the launch of the foundation, said: “Malta is still mourning the loss of Nirvana Azzopardi, Helen Muscat and many other people who have been lost to this disease over the years.”
“However, mourning our loved ones is not enough. As scientific progress is made and cancer treatment worldwide is continuing to make substantial improvements, we must ensure that everyone with cancer has access to these important advances.”
The CC Cancer Foundation with the support of the Health department is working to collect funds towards the provision of the most advanced cancer treatment and facilities. The foundation also aims to promote healthy living through activities that bring people together.
“Calamatta Cuschieri has always taken pride in our social corporate responsibility but this is about focusing on one area and really trying to make a difference. This is just the first of many events that we shall be hosting and we hope to be able to make a difference with the money collected,” said Mr Cuschieri.
Calamatta Cuschieri is proud to have Gianluca Bezzina on board because he shares the same values of the company.
Gianluca Bezzina said he was very grateful to be supported by a company that was genuine in its efforts to invest in people’s lives.
“It is a pleasure to be able to use my music for such positive initiatives especially in the health sector which is so close to my heart,” he added.
Get Walking for Cancer is being held at 10am on Sunday, November 17th, starting at Chalet and continuing along the Sliema promenade to the Love sign in St Julian’s and back to Chalet.
Personal trainer Richard Geres will provide a warm-up to the event while Gianluca Bezzina and his band will close off the walk with a performance.
The CC Cancer Foundation, a non-profit foundation, will be collecting donations on the day. Participants can donate by contributing €10 to the foundation in return for a free T-shirt commemorating the event.
The T-shirts can be picked up prior to the event from Calamatta Cuschieri’s offices in Valletta and Qormi, the Health Department in Sliema or Richard Geres in St Julian’s.
