World Pancreatic Cancer Day (WPCD) is celebrated every year on November 21st. This is an initiative designed to promote knowledge and to raise awareness of the prevention and treatment of this disease - one of the most aggressive and lethal neoplasms and, unfortunately, whose numbers are constantly increasing.
On this day, Antares Vision actively participates in Let's Light on Pancreatic Cancer, and has done now for many years. It is an event which includes all facades of all Antares Vision offices across the world illuminated in purple lights to raise awareness about the danger of this silent killer. It is organized by the Associazione Nastro Viola, to which the company is very close, together with World Pancreatic Cancer Day.
In addition, since 2017, the AV Sporting Team has been promoting the Nastro Viola Trophy, a non-competitive race aimed at raising funds to finance scientific research on pancreatic cancer with local activities. The involvement of the sports club, and consequently of Antares Vision, has been almost automatic, not only because it has been severely affected internally by this disease, but also because it has always placed solidarity and attention to the territory among its founding values.
