"New Day – New Hopes"

To defeat cancer we must stand together.
Catching cancer early is the best way to defeat this disease. Living a healthy lifestyle of proper exercise and diet with regular medical check ups is paramount in cancer prevention. The Hungarian League Against Cancer offers valuable public lectures and sporting activities to meet this need. Our program events are designed to help Hungarian society by reducing the number who could face a diagnosis of cancer.
It is easier together. We offer walking tours, running and biking exercise groups. The Hungarian League Against Cancer is here to make the "road with cancer" more manageable. We help cancer patients, their families and friends overcome the hurdles of this disease through group activities.

Együtt könnyebb. Még a rákkal szemben is.
A korán felfedezett daganatok esetében a kezelések eredményesebbek. A rendszeres szűrővizsgálatokon való részvétellel és a sportos, egészséges életmóddal mindenki hozzájárulhat ehhez. A Magyar Rákellenes Liga értékes ismeretterjesztő és közös sportos programokat szervez ennek érdekében. Figyelemfelkeltő és a daganatok megelőzésére, egészséges életmódra ösztönző programjaink segíthetnek abban, hogy kevesebben szembesüljenek a rák diagnózisával. Együtt könnyebb! Közös gyaloglásokat, futóedzéseket, kerékpározást és sok egyéb vidám programot szervezünk, amelyeken való részvétel erőt ad és megkönnyíti a daganatos betegségek rögös útján való haladást.

Take action against cancer – 2019

Cancer is one of the biggest challenges nowadays. Almost every family and workplace is affected in some ways and it is getting more frequent at a younger age.

We believe in that with prevention and early recognition (self-examination, screening) we can save a many of people’s life and this way significantly more people can live longer lives with better quality of life!

Our goal in 2019 is to reach as many people as possible with the key messages of the Hungarian League Against Cancer on prevention and early recognition:
- One third of cancers are preventable (European Code Against Cancer)
- Tumours recognized in time can be handled more effectively (self-examination, screening)

However, this knowledge is only worthwhile if we turn it into action. Therefore, on February 4, World Cancer Day, we announced 2019 as the Year of Action!

Our local organizations and Support Services hold hundreds of programs on health, prevention and early detection every year.

In schools, our volunteers help young people learn in a playful way about the key rules of healthy living and cancer prevention. (Exercise, obesity, cervical cancer and HPV vaccination, smoking, alcohol, breast and testicular self-examination, sun and UV protection, healthy eating.)

We call attention to participating in screening for cervical cancer, breast cancer and colon cancer. We also organize cervical, dermatological, oral and prostate screenings for the local population because screening can save lives!

We count on everyone in our work to do more in the interest of their own health and help to get this message across to others as well.

You, too, take action, support our work!

Related event - "New Day – New Hopes"


“New Day – New Hopes” is a new community fundraising event the central element of which is a walk starting late at night and finishing at sunrise. The main participants of the morning walk are fundraising Ambassadors who, through their participation in the event, collect funds for a Good Cause of their choosing in their own circle of friends.

The concept and the spirit of the event are built around two thoughts: the dawn after the night, the sunrise, which symbolizes hope and optimism in the future and the common walk that reflects the cooperation between individuals and organizations. All of this without any political overtones, the event is solely focused on the activities of NGOs and on fundraising.

The morning walk will take place on 5. Octobre 2019 (Saturday), its planned route will be from the Széll Kálmán square to the top of the Gellért Hill (about 3.5 km). The planned departure time is 5:00, the sun rises at 6:47, and the program ends with a common breakfast after sunrise.

" There was never a night or a problem that could defeat sunrise or hope."
