Results of ALIVE2022 Cycling Challenge for Cancer
The ALIVE Charity Foundation has donated another €90,000 to the Research, Innovation and Development Trust (RIDT). These funds, raised through this year’s Dr Juice ALIVE2022 Cycling Challenge in Aid of Cancer Research, were presented during a ceremony held at the Centre for Molecular Medicine and Biobanking at the University of Malta.

Set up in 2013, the ALIVE Charity Foundation has to date donated more than €700,000 for cancer research, thereby supporting a number of PhD and Masters scholarships and additional specific research projects, some of which are still ongoing. During the donation ceremony, Prof. Christian Scerri, on behalf of the cancer research teams at the University of Malta, gave an overview of how the money received from the Foundation has been utilised so far. His presentation summed up the extent of ALIVE’s impact on the research portfolio of the University, and has in no unclear terms shown how far the donations have gone.

Prof. Alfred J. Vella, Rector of the University expressed his gratitude to the ALIVE Charity Foundation who for the past decade have been a strong supporter of the University’s research efforts and appealed for more similar support from other sectors of the community.

Mr Nicky Camilleri, Chairperson of ALIVE Charity Foundation spoke about the determination of the NGO to persevere in generating awareness and supporting cancer research in the hope that one day we could be able to live a better quality of life. He thanked the organising Committee, as well as the cyclists and their families, who together in one united effort, made all this possible.

The Alive charity foundation

Raising funds for medical research.

ALIVE Charity Foundation has fast become a recognised non-governmental organisation registered under the Commission of Voluntary Organisations (VO 801). Being the first foundation locally to raise funds for medical research in Malta, we always believed that the most effective way to combat cancer was to treat those who may be affected and most of all carry out strategic research. In this way, one can speed up diagnosis, identify causes and eventually identify cures. This is why the Foundation’s aim has always been to fund Ph.D. Scholarships at the University of Malta. Since its inception in 2013, with the support of corporate companies and the Maltese Community at large, ALIVE Charity Foundation has donated over €135,000 towards breast cancer research, €170,000 towards children’s cancer research and €80,000 towards a children’s recreational area within Sir Anthony Mamo Oncology Centre. Between 2019 and 2021, the sum of €227,000 was donated to the University of Malta in order to sustain seven cancer research projects. The enthusiasm and the momentum created over the past years was abruptly halted by the pandemic outbreak. Nevertheless, we are all conscious of the fact that the University requires financial support to fund cancer research.

Alive Charity Foundation is a registered NGO under the Office of the Commission of Voluntary Organizations – VO 801.
