If you love your heels and can’t live without them, here is a novel way to raise awareness of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer and to help raise HK$300,000 to benefit the underprivileged breast & ovarian cancer patients and their families.

The annual Race with Pink Heels will be held on 18 November 2012. Organized by HK Hereditary Breast Cancer Family Registry (“THE REGISTRY”) and managed by Sportsoho, participants will wear a pair of 2 inches high heels and compete for championship at HK-Stanley Market Main Street. Depends on the selected categories, runners are encouraged to wear high heels decorated with pink accessories or simply go pink heels. Categories available include Corporate Team, Men’s and Women’s Pink Races, Wife Carrying and Dog & Buddy Race, so something for everyone. So come out be pink and have some fun! Details on their website.
