Thousands of people participated in the 2022 Rotary Cancer Run  on sunday 4th September at Kololo Airstrip in Kampala.

Hundreds of organizations came together to run for this noble cause and among these was Uganda’s Boxing Club, Uganda Bombers.

Uganda’s boxing giants, the Bombers, made an announcement on Twitter with the hashtag “Rotary Cancer Run 22” and the message, “We will be there, join us for this noble cause.”

Takumuhamwe Joshua, the team captain, and Teddy Nakimuli, a commonwealth medalist in Birmingham, were among those leading the bombers in the line this morning for the event, which was flagged off by Rotary International (RI) President Jenifer Jones.

Since 2012, the Rotary Cancer Run has been held annually to raise money for cancer programs. It is currently in its eleventh edition.

After being postponed for two years owing to the COVID-19 epidemic, the event finally took place this year.

This event’s lead sponsors, the Rotary Club, worked with other organizations like the Centenary Bank, Uganda Baati, Rwenzori Water, the Ugandan Parliament, and Vision Group to make it a success.

This year’s run was purposely to raise money to construct a bunker in Nsambya hospital and increase access to treatment for all Ugandans having cancer.

Much appreciation to the Bombers and all the stakeholders for their involvement and support towards this noble cause.
