Screen_Shot_2015-05-11_at_8.26.48_PMAt the top of the newscast we told you about the resounding success that the 7th Annual Cancer Walk was which attracted hundreds of residents. After the two mile walk that lasted about an hour and a half, the activity culminated with a health fair at the Central Park. Today when we spoke with leader of the Orange Walk Cancer Group, Badhra Coleman, she took the opportunity to thank businesses and individuals who continue to contribute financially in order to battle the terrible cancer disease.


Badhra Coleman–Leader, OW Cancer Group


“We’re very happy to see all that support that we received I know that people came over from all across the country to our walk to show support to those who are fighting and those who have lost a loved one. This year was one of the largest crowds so much so that I would not be able to estimate how many people were out there but I want to thank each and every one of them for showing up. We are also getting support financially we have Cuellos who have been pledging $5,000 for the last four years in memory of their mother and then this year Smart came up with a $1,000 that they gave us and Belize Bank that has always been our sponsors for the last five years for our health fair and we have the Wicab family and those who gave five or ten dollars. All the money will be used to help those who are fighting cancer. At the end the walk is over but our job is not over and it is important for us to get support because when we are selling tickets or anything else it is because we are going to help a different family. We have always seen the community help us we have a 100 percent from our friends in Corozal and all over Belize.”


Currently, the Orange Walk Cancer group provides services and support to 7 children and 23 adults from the Orange Walk District. A candle light vigil is scheduled for May 30th and the public is invited.
