Along with the “Lung Cancer Awareness Month” that takes place on November each year, MS Pharma organized “Mini-Marathon for the health of the lungs” – 5 km in collaboration with Jordan Beats – a youth charity association.
The activity targeted the public and started early in the morning on the 20th of November with some warm-up activities led by Elevate Gym team, then the mini-marathon started and the participants ran or walked the assigned track. After that we had a celebration in Zaha Center where we welcomed the guests, shared some scientific facts about lung cancer statistics and the bad influence of smoking on that with main focus on the advantages of regular walking on the health of the lungs. We also honored the name of the well-known journalist Sa’ad Al-Sillawi who fought cancer for years with the presence of his family members. Then we distributed the trophies and medals to the winners from both genders and different age groups including some Down’s syndrome children, and finally we honored as well two of the lung cancer survivors who are a true example of fighting to win your hard battle.
