In collaboration with Gjensidige, the Norwegian Cancer Society has established a new class in 2019 called “the financial industry for the Cancer Association”. The goal is to get most teams of the finance industry to run for an important cause.

From earlier, the Norwegian Cancer Society, in collaboration with Backe AS, has its own class for the construction industry, where building, construction and property companies are challenged to run side by side with their industry colleagues.

If the teams in these pools want to support the Norwegian Cancer Society, the whole team will run with sweat bands that show that they have raceed for an important cause and contributed to the fight against cancer.

To run for the Norwegian Cancer Society sign up the team in class A1/A2-C «The finance industry for the Norwegian Cancer Society» or A1/A2-B «Construction industry for the Norwegian Cancer Society».
