Ezzy Wang has been taking part in the 10 kilometer run for the past five years.

But unlike most of us, Ezzy has been doing this on crutches.

Ezzy is cancer survivor, having lost his right leg to a rare cartilage-based tumour in his pelvis.

He shared with me why he decided to run on crutches, rather than on a prosthetic leg.

"My amputation is pretty high, including my pelvis. Cos that's the origin of the cancer cells. So once it's removed, i don't have a pelvis, if i want to put on a prosthetic leg, i need to put a belt on. When I put on a belt, I have to swing my prosthetic leg forward to get it firm before I can lift my left leg. That kind of movement is going to hinder me very very much, and of course it will hurt my spine badly."

Ezzy is especially excited about this year's run, having been appointed the official Run For Hope 2009 champion.

"I can actually inspire alot of people, even the cancer patients. Once you're diagnosed with cancer, you have actually not been sentenced to death. If I can stand out, it also brings a message to those able people or those healthy people that we need to do our part. Because the run for hope theme, is that today's research is tomorrow's cure."
