Cisco NL and Friends walk El Camino 2022 Fundraising
Over 400 Cisco employees, families and friends from 21 countries, are currently training to join in the adventure of hiking the famous Spanish 'Camino de Santiago' (The Way of Saint James) in June. During the period of the Camino, the combined team will walk more than 60,000 km, or 37,000 miles; equivalent to walking around the earth's equator one and a half times. The main purpose of this initiative is to raise funds for cancer support associations across the globe. We all have been impacted in some way by cancer, and in support of the efforts of "Los Caminantes", we are asking you to join us in the fight against cancer. We will walk an average of twenty-three kilometers per day. Every 5 minutes, which is equivalent to every 500 meters of walking, someone in the Netherlands gets diagnosed with cancer. For each day we walk, 46 people will have gotten bad news that severely disrupted their and their loved ones' lives. Every amount donated to this cause will help! It can make a difference to someone facing one of the most difficult times of their life or to help make their last moments on earth count. The NL team has chosen to support KWF, whose main goals are to prevent cancer wherever they can, to stimulate better treatment for every type of cancer, to aim for a better quality of life for (recovered) patients and their loved ones, and to ensure that high quality palliative care is available to all patients.​ Sponsor us and help KWF fund important research into cancer.
