Bladder Cancer Canada Awareness Walk is this Sunday (Sept. 21) in Victoria.

Registration for the five-kilometre walk begins at 9:15 a.m. at Clover Point. Walkers head off at 10 a.m.

Last year, the Bladder Cancer Canada Awareness Walk raised more than $400,000 nationwide.

“This year we hope to once again surpass our goal, with funds going towards Bladder Cancer Canada’s mission to help patients and their support teams address the day-to-day issues of this disease; increase awareness of bladder cancer among the general public and medical community and; fund research which pursues the diagnosis, treatment and elimination of bladder cancer,” said Hilary Potosnak, media co-ordinator for the Victoria event.
