Six years after the first 2600 people gathered in the spirit of fighting against cancer, Jakarta RACE is now the city’s largest annual charity run. Jakarta RACE (Race Against Cancer Everyone) is organised by Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta in partnership with PT. Roche Indonesia, HSBC and supported with many other corporate sponsors that are committed to support the cancer education, prevention and direct patient support through various programs. Together, they hope to raise funds that will be donated for cancer education, awareness programs and direct financial aid through the Indonesian Cancer Foundation.
Jakarta RACE 2011 will be held on Sunday, October 23, 2011 at Landmark Area with the theme “Jakarta RACE for Indonesia,” representing the spirit of Jakarta RACE and all involved partners, and a hope to continue the fight against cancer not only in Jakarta but also in Indonesia.
