Neil Armstrong and Gurpreet Singh Tandi will be running London marathon for World cancer care and sporting equals charities .
WORLD CANCER CARE
World cancer care are a global organisation working together to bring cancer awareness, education and screening facilities to people who would not otherwise have access to such services.
Many people simply can’t afford to visit a doctor for a simple physical exam or screening appointment, and many live too far away from the hospitals and surgeries which could provide life-saving cancer checks.
Our fully converted, mobile cancer-screening vehicles and pop-up medical camps can access remote villages and areas of India to offer these services to people in need. We also provide counselling for patients who are diagnosed with cancer through our connections with medical experts and Government hospitals.
Sporting Equals exists to actively promote greater involvement in sport and physical activity by disadvantaged communities particularly the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) population. We are the national partner of Sport England and advisors to the Department of Culture Media and Sport.
We work closely with both the providers of sporting opportunities (national governing bodies, local authorities, leisure trusts and sports organisations) and the users of sporting opportunities (community and faith groups, local clubs, charities and individuals). We have a network of over 5000 organisations and have strong links with NHS agencies and other organisations addressing health inequalities.
Our mission is to make a sustainable difference to the inclusion of all under-represented communities in sport and physical activity, so as to improve the long-term opportunities and health outcomes of those communities.
