The Hospice Palliative Care Association (HPCA) will be hosting the 5th instalment of this popular fun walk/run event, on Sunday 5th February 2017 at the Greenpoint Track (Fritz Sonnenberg Road, Greenpoint).

The aim of Lace-Up for Cancer is to mark World Cancer Day and also to meet the HPCA’s objective of promoting quality in life, dignity in death and support in bereavement for all living with a life-threatening illness by supporting member hospices and partner organisations.

We are calling on people who have been affected by cancer, whether it be survivors or those who have lost a loved one, to Lace-Up for Cancer and help us raise much-needed funds for different charities under the Cancer Alliance banner. The 2017 beneficiary organisations are:

·       The Sunflower Fund

·       CANSA

·       CHOC

·       Love Your Nuts

·       People Living With Cancer


We are looking forward to hosting 5,000 walking and running enthusiasts at the Lace-Up for Cancer 2017.

There are two race options:

·       5km Fun Walk / Run
