A Journey Starts With the First Step...
ECCT has been in partnership with the Victoria Falls Hotel since 2014 and we have worked together to host various fitness events to benefit the Victoria Falls community, along with sponsoring marginalised cancer patients and their families with school fees for their children, food hampers and any treatment required.
Some of the events held since 2014 include Victoria Falls community Fitness classes hosted by Fitness To A Tee, the Victoria Falls Marathon run by the Victoria Falls Hotel team annually and Teurai (Fitness To A Tee and ECCT Founder) hosting corporate health sessions for The Victoria Falls Hotel staff.
Nine years on - the journey of hope continues: November 2023
On Saturday 25 November 2023 the ECCT hosted a Cancer Fundraiser at and in partnership with The Victoria Falls Hotel. During the week of the Fundraiser - the ECCT (with assistance from the Hotel) also visited and found five beneficiaries to support.
Thank you: Victoria Falls business community!
We are grateful for the support and sponsorship provided by the following businesses for the Cancer Fundraiser event, some of whom also contributed raffle prizes - which is assisting the families we found. This is truly a story of a whole community working together to improve the health of its most vulnerable and marginalised people, affected by cancer!

Sponsor A Cancer Patient Campaign: "Journey of Hope" - Online Raffle and Auction 2024
The journey continues with the online raffle and auction we are hosting in partnership with The Victoria Falls Hotel, Zimbabwe. Proceeds from the raffle are going to support our beneficiaries including the ten children we are supporting in the Victoria Falls and Gutu communities with school fees, plus our adult patients who require treatment and medication.
Goal amount to raise
We are aiming to raise USD$2000 from this online raffle and auction.
We also have this absolutely stunning piece of art from Larry Norton Gallery, Victoria Falls which has been donated by the Gallery as an auction prize. The details of this art is below:
Title: "Eastern Cataract"
Medium: Print on Canvas
Size: 24” x 36” (61 x 91 cm)
Notes: The Victoria Falls from the Zambian side reveals a magnificent chasm. From the main Falls, further towards Zimbabwe, emanates spray and an arching rainbow. The bridge spans the gorge between the two countries. Rarely seen, but resident only in this place and the surrounds, one finds the striking Schalows Turaco.
