In line with delivering the Good Life to all Ugandans, the Good Life team participated in the cancer run that was organised jointly by the Rotarians in Uganda, Centenary Bank and Crown Beverages Limited aimed at raising funds for the completion of the Rotary Cancer Ward at St. Francis Hospital, Nsambya–Kampala, Uganda. The run which took place on August 31, 2014 aimed to address the increasing incidence of non communicable diseases like cancer.
The run that was graced by the former Tanzanian President Ali Hassan Mwinyi will have funds raised to complete the Ward that will help to supplement the current limited facilities in the country, in prevention and treatment of cancers. The 36-bed capacity ward is estimated to cost UGX 1.3 billion and is currently in its final stages. The charity event raised over UGX 300 million.
