Volunteers swam eight kilometres in Limassol early on Saturday to support cancer patients, sending the message that “no one is alone”.

To meet the group of swimmers at the finish line, two runners ran 26 kilometres starting from the Limassol general hospital.

The event was organised for the third consecutive year and is expected to continue, the leader of the initiative, volunteer swimmer Chrysostomos Chrysostomou said.

Thanking those who participated and supported the event, Chrysostomou said the action aimed to send the message that “no one is alone” and to support the work of the anti-cancer society.

For her part, the president of the Limassol district committee of the Cyprus anti-Cancer Association, Betty Antoniadou, thanked the volunteers for their support to the important work of the association.

Cyprus anti-cancer society was established in the 1971 with a mission to care for people with cancer and support the patients’ families and carergivers, but also inform the wider public about cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and relief.
