PINK WALK Against Breast Cancer 2011

28 Aug


According to the Susan G Koman for the Cure website, breast cancer is the most common cancer in women worldwide. Nearly 1.4 million new cases of breast cancer occurred among women worldwide in 2008 (most recent data available).

Seven years ago the Hong Kong Breast Cancer Foundation launched the Pink Walk Against Breast Cancer. With two walk options a 1-1.5 hour 3.5km walk around the Peak suitable for all the family and a longer 2-2.5 hour 7km walk along part of the popular Hong Kong Trail with scenic views of Central, Sheung Wan and Pokfulam for the more energetic, different categories from individual to small team and different awards to challenge including the Best Dressed Pink Award, there is something for everyone. Funds raised will support their work in breast health education, patient support services, local breast cancer research and advocacy. Whether you are doing it on your own or as a group, join now, get out into the fresh air, get some exercise and have some fun for a good cause.

Assembly Time: 9am
