Last week, we talked about the event that mobilizes Pink October, a month traditionally dedicated to the prevention of breast cancer. But not only breasts feeds cancer, this plague. So, we took advantage of this space to announce that registrations are now open for the 6th edition of the Icesp Run, on November 27th, which marks the National Day to Combat Cancer. The test is organized by the São Paulo Cancer Institute Octavio Frias de Oliveira (Icesp), a specialized unit of the Hospital das Clínicas of the USP School of Medicine (University of São Paulo), and by the São Paulo State Health Department.

ICESP is a Folha partner in the award named after the newspaper’s publisher, Octavio Frias de Oliveira, who died in 2007. The award is given every year to scientists who stand out in the categories of Research in Oncology and Technological Innovation, in addition to honoring prominent personalities in the specialty.

The activity, which will start at 7:00 am from Praça Charles Miller, at the Pacaembu Sports Complex, in São Paulo, hopes to bring together up to 3,000 people who will choose 5- and 10-kilometer runs, or 5-kilometer walks. There will also be special batteries for kids from 4 to 13 years old. The objective, as in previous years, is to reinforce, in a festive atmosphere, the importance of taking care of health from childhood to adulthood, and to offer any athlete profile, whether experienced or beginner, a contact with this democratic sport that can be practiced anywhere and at any time on the planet — in addition to helping to improve physical conditioning for those who like to face trails and perrengues around.

“Exercise often contributes to increased immunity and also to reducing body inflammation and improving body composition, also bringing benefits to the mind, such as increased self-esteem, improved sleep and a greater sense of well-being” , says the president of the Board of Directors of ICESP, Prof. Dr. Paulo Hoff.

According to him, it is the Institute’s role to encourage more and more the adoption of healthy habits, and physical activity is a great ally when it comes to prevention, as it fights obesity and helps with hormonal balance, which can make a difference against various types of cancer.

Those interested in participating can now register online at The financial result of the test will be fully invested in the development of assistance, teaching and research projects at the Cancer Institute.
