7 Peaks, 7 Weeks

Africa’s mountains is nothing short of majestic, with East Africa proudly boasting three of the continent’s highest peaks. It is from these towering giants that our transformative expedition finds its inspiration.

Guided by Faith, Hope, Courage, and Strength, we embark on the challenge of summiting the seven peaks, a symbolic representation of the cancer journey’s spirit. These values propel us forward, serving as beacons of resilience and determination.

Adding vibrancy to our mission, we’ve chosen colours that symbolize various cancers, creating a visual representation of our commitment to raising awareness. Yet, our vision extends beyond visuals; our ultimate goal is to acquire a mobile cancer screening laboratory truck

Empowerment through Generosity
