LifeCycle Challenge 2018 has sealed its lead sponsorship with Foster Clark Products Ltd for the second year running. Managing Director, Mr Joseph Busuttil presented the sponsorship cheque of €25,000 to LifeCycle (Malta) Foundation Chairperson Dr Shirley Cefai.
The funds being raised by LifeCycle participants will go towards the needs and care of kidney disease patients. Apart from life-saving equipment and improved facilities, LifeCycle is sponsoring the Twilight Shift Van to transport patients to and from Mater Dei Hospital for their evening dialysis, as well as the software matching programme called “Traccia” which determines the best recipient for a kidney donation. LifeCycle Foundation also offers a part sponsorship of the annual trip to Lourdes for patients and accompanying medical staff. The Foundation aims to raise a substantial sum of €150,000 to sustain its current and new projects for 2018-2019.
