10km Mouth Cancer Walk

So back on the 19th of September the annual FREE Mouth Cancer 10km walk took place and our very own Bobby (chairman of the India Association) made an appearance in preparation for the main event in India.



It was a lovely sunny day in Hyde Park in London and there was a huge turnout of people arriving from 11am. 

The 10th annual walk saw a variety of people taking part including the families of those who have suffered from mouth cancer as well the victims, health professionals and others supporting the cause. 

The day was supported and ran by the Mouth Cancer Foundation and as it was the 10th anniversary, there were some really motivating introductory speeches, including one from Bobby about his 2800 mile walk from one tip of India to another in aid of Great Ormond Street, HRH Prince of Wales Trust and the India Association.  

There was lots of support for Bobby, the crowd cheered and applauded - the 10km was certainly 'a walk in the park'

All the people who completed the walk earned their medals and goody bags at the end and along the walk there was lots of tips for both the general public and health professionals on how to examine oral cancer and what the signs and symptoms are. 

Fellow members of Sterling Dental Foundation walked alongside Bobby and Rajan Bhanot (of the India Association). Nisha K Narwal, committee member of the foundation says ''Overall it was a great fun day organised by bubbly enthusiastic people''
