SIOP EUROPE: Building a brighter future for children and adolescents with cancer
Cancer in young people is rare but it is still a major health issue in Europe.
With 35 000 new cases and 6 000 children dying each year, paediatric cancer remains the leading cause of death from disease for children and young people.
SIOP Europe is the only pan-European organisation representing all professions (doctors, nurses, scientists, etc.) working in the field of childhood cancers. Our mission is to ensure a brighter future for all children and adolescents affected by cancer in Europe. We are striving to reach two goals by the year 2025: to increase the cure rate and the quality of cure for children and adolescents with cancer.
Why run with SIOP Europe? Because every kilometre you run counts for childhood cancer. Join us on Sunday 29 September 2019 in Mechelen for the 5K or 10K Run (Fintro Dwars door Mechelen).
Working together to build a brighter future for children and young people:
We will not stop when we are tired!
We will stop when we are done!
Last year, almost 100 runners joined our team! You may browse the pictures here.
