Relay for life: join us and make a donation

24 May 2022
All Committees

We all know someone whose life has been impacted by cancer. Relay for Life is an initiative to raise funds for the fight against cancer where participants gather and relay walking for 24 hours, as a symbol of the constant battle of patients and their families. It will take place on Saturday, 18 June and Sunday, 19 June (noon to noon) at St John’s International School in Waterloo. We walk to honour those who have survived, those who are fighting and those who are no longer with us, including our dear former colleague Andreas Galanakis. We are calling on all members to support our efforts in two ways:

  • Join our team and come walk with us for a couple of hours. Bring family and friends to a kids-friendly and fun community event.
  • Make a donation (as an individual or as a company)

AmCham EU shares the objectives of the European Commission to increase access to and further the (re-)use of data through the proposed ‘Data Act’. In order to ensure the Data Act meets its stated objectives, it should focus on promoting greater voluntary data sharing to boost economic growth, research and innovation, competitiveness and job creation while ensuring international data flows are protected. In order to ensure the Data Act meets its objectives, the Commission should address key overarching issues which require clarification and should be prioritised when analysing the proposal.
