Hello all! How the year is flying. We can’t believe that we have already entered October. Happy new month to you!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So many of us have been touched by Breast Cancer either through battling it ourselves or watching a family member; friend or colleague face it. What are you doing this month to alleviate the Breast cancer burden? It can be as simple as looking up how to do your own breast check if you are a woman.

In July and August 2017, ECCT had a successful time in Harare and then in Victoria Falls raising awareness of its work and then also fundraising for the families it supports. Teurai – ECCT Founder and Founder of Fitness To A Tee hosted a Health & Wellness Week at the Victoria Falls Hotel for staff, which included Nutrition workshops and exercise classes. USD$750 was raised throughout the week.

In addition, the ECCT added two new families to support in the Victoria Falls community who have been affected by cancer. The 2 new beneficiaries are 9 year old Ethel and 13 year old Kylee who the ECCT is supporting with school fees.

Please see our photos below for a snippet of how successful these months were. Thank you to all those who came along to support us!!
