Israel Cancer Association

האגודה למלחמה בסרטן בישראל נוסדה בשנת 1952 במטרה להקטין את התחלואה והתמותה ממחלת הסרטן ולשפר את איכות חיי החולים. האגודה הינה מוסד ללא כוונות רווח הפועלת הודות לתרומות הציבור וללא כל מימון מתקציב של משרד ממשלתי כלשהו. עובדה המאפשרת את המציאות לפיה הסיוע הניתן על ידי האגודה נקבע ללא מעורבות של שיקולים זרים, על ידי ועדות מקצועיות שחברים בהן בהתנדבות נציגים ממיטב אנשי הרפואה והמחקר ברחבי הארץ. הפרויקטים שנתמכים נבחנים בקפידה, לאחר שיקול דעת מקצועי וענייני לטובת הנושא ברמה הלאומית.

שנות פעילותה בארץ ומגוון התחומים אותם קידמה, הקנו לאגודה למלחמה בסרטן הכרה ציבורית, לאומית ובינלאומית רחבה. לאגודה קבוצות ידידים במספר ארצות בחו"ל וייצוג בפורומים חשובים בישראל ובעולם.

Run for a Life - Jerusalem Marathon 2014

There are many reasons for participating in the Jerusalem Marathon: to maintain a healthy lifestyle, to meet a personal challenge, to enjoy the experience of a sports happening, or simply for the sake of having fun. The Israel Cancer Association suggests that you enhance your experience and incorporate charitable giving into your sports activity, so that, together, we can achieve several aims: heightening cancer prevention awareness, enhancing patients' and survivors' quality of life, and supporting research to eventually close in on a cure. So how do we do it? The Fourth Annual Jerusalem Marathon is scheduled to take place on Friday, 21 March 2014, and the Israel Cancer Association invites you to make your running experience a more meaningful one. Please give a few minutes of your time and open a personal fundraising page, featuring a personal message, photo or clip as well as your fundraising target. Share the page with your friends, acquaintances and relatives, who will support the challenge you have taken on – finishing the race and raising your target sum. Your donation helps enhance the lives of cancer patients and their families and also assists in financing research studies that will help us find a cure for the disease.

Redwood International Sports runs for children with cancer

1 GBP (£) = 5.53 NIS (₪) We are proud to run together as a company to help Israeli children who have cancer. Some of us are runners. Many are not. Some have never run 2km before! Regardless, we plan to fully enjoy this race together and hope and pray that our contributions will help those who desperately need assistance. Children who suffer from cancer have to face physical and mental challenges on a daily basis. Aside from the daily struggle, they also have to cope with missing a lot of school due to the numerous medical treatments they have to undergo. The Israel Cancer Association's "Hope for Life" Project provides a tutor for each child who has cancer, to help them catch up on what they have missed, allowing them to continue to lead a normal life, to as great an extent as possible, within a scholastic framework. Redwood International Sports employees are going to participate in the Rishon LeZion 10KM race on May 3rd 2013. The company will donate 150 NIS for each staff member taking part. We would be delighted if you could join us on the streets of Rishon Lezion. If, however, you are not able to run on that day, but would like to help support this worthy cause, please donate through this website. All donations will be automatically forwarded to the Israel Cancer Association. For further information, please contact Liat Sharabi: email liat_s@redwoodassets.com
