The World's largest Cancer awareness run "Quambiant Developers - Global Grace Cancer Run-2023" is to be held in the city on October 8th at Gachibowli Stadium.

Over 1 lakh participants from across 130 countries are expected to participate

This is its 6th edition. The theme of the same is 'Be Light'. It is a unique run in the sense it is organised in hybrid mode and the only of its kind to be done that way as well as its mammoth participation. It will have a participation of over 1 lakh people from 130 plus countries, informed Dr. Chinnababu Sunkavalli, Senior Consultant Robotic Surgical Oncologist and the Founder of GRACE (Global Research And Cancer Education) Cancer Foundation in a press note issued in the city today.


The Run which is organised with the support of Quambiant Developers, Telangana Police, and Hyderabad Runners and others will be held in three different categories--5K, 10K, and 21.1K(Half Marathon). Over 20,000 participants are expected to participate in the event to be held in the Gachibowli.

The format is Hybrid--In-person as well as Virtual. Probably it is the only Run in India that is held in two different formats.

The run will be organised by GRACE Cancer Foundation, a Hyderabad-based non-profit organisation founded to alleviate cancer burden through Education, Early Detection, Treatment, Rehabilitation and cutting-edge Research. Every participant not only gets to run their favourite distance, but they also help a good cause by donating a portion of their registration fee to cancer screening and awareness” Dr Chinababu said


The objectives for the Run according to Dr. Chinababu are to make a meaningful and significant impact on people’s lives by creating awareness about Cancer, to promote physical activity as a means to prevent and combat cancer in society and to help people lead active lifestyles and also to raise funds for screening the underprivileged right at their doorstep, for free.

The Grace Cancer Foundation works towards helping marginalized communities fight cancer. Most tumours are treatable if they are detected at an early stage and offered the right treatment. However, most people living in remote and slum areas across the globe are ignorant of this fact, and unfortunately, they are succumbing to it. So, it has been our deepest desire to reach out to the unreached and bring awareness about this disease.

It is baffling that 9.5 million people are losing to cancer every year across the world. So, to prevent more people from falling prey to it, so far, the foundation has been conducting free screening camps, cancer awareness talks, and cancer runs in 10 countries, covering 4 continents.




The list of supporting organisations is Quambiant Developers the title sponsor for Global Grace Cancer Run 2023. The run is powered by Natco and co-sponsored by Microsoft, Providence, NMDC, Movers.com, Pi Health and Smart IMS. The event is being sponsored in partnership with SCSC, AP, Telangana Police and Global Grace Health and is being hosted in association with Hyderabad Runners, NASSCOM, AMCHAM India, and HYSEA. Yashoda Hospitals is the medical partner.
