Race Against Cancer, Race for Life !

 Diagnosed with leukemia in 1993, popular Mandarin radio host Billy Wang (also known to fans as ‘Dongfang Billy’) admits to being terrified coming to terms with his mortality. But instead of being defeated, he made a vow to live each day battling cancer, demonstrating an unbroken spirit amidst insurmountable odds.

 Billy now not only works on radio and television, but has also written his own inspirational book, actively helps out in charities and promotes healthy living through talks and websites. We run to make a difference for people like Billy and so many others like him…

 

It takes all of us to defeat cancer. On 22 July 2012, Extra Excellence (S) Pte Ltd, also known as E. Excel Singapore, a leading global health and wellness company, joined thousands in the Race Against Cancer Charity run that kicked off at Angsana Green, East Coast Park.

 The annual event’s Guest of Honor this year is Mr. Chan Chun Sing, Singapore’s Acting Minister for Community Development, Youth and Sports & Minister of State, Ministry of Information, Communications and the Arts. The annual run’s routes featured 5km Fun Run, 10km Competitive Run, 15km Competitive Run and a Corporate Challenge.

Organized by the Singapore Cancer Society, Race Against Cancer is now approaching its fourth year, pressing on to its goal to raise funds for various programs, such as cancer treatment subsidy, hospice home care, welfare assistance for needy cancer patients, free cancer screenings and public education initiatives.

The Singapore Cancer Society was established in 1964 and for the past 47 years has helped countless needy patients and pushed the cancer cause in Singapore through its many programs and services as a community-based voluntary health organization dedicated to minimizing the impact of cancer through public education, financial assistance, research and advocacy. True to its mission to share the gifts of health and knowledge with mankind, E. Excel has been supporting the Race Against Cancer Charity Run for the past three years.

 

To this day, cancer remains a global burden causing untold suffering to its hapless victims, their families and their communities. E. Excel is proud to have spearheaded tremendous progress over the past 25 years in health research and preventive care. It continues to invest heavily in research on wholesome plant foods, with emphasis on Nutritional Immunology.
