Park Inn Hotels in Oman supports Oman Cancer Association
This year’s 14th Annual Oman Cancer Awareness Walkathon, taking place on 31st October from 4pm at Qurum National Park, is expected to draw 7000 participants. Park Inn by Radisson Hotels in Oman will take part to support the cause. The two hotels will provide some food and drinks during the event and all proceeds will be donated to the OCA.
OCA is a non-governmental, non-profit organization. The inception of the Association was in the 2000 but was registered at the Ministry of Social Development in 2004. The Walkathon also serves the Association as a fundraising event. When the participants register for the Walkathon, they receive a specially designed T-shirt.
The Walkathon has become an important annual event in Muscat to help increase public awareness on cancer control and prevention. From the first Walkathon in 2003, when 270 people gathered, OCA was able to summon more than 7,800 people in 2016.
