Project PINK BLUE is a cancer Nonprofit engaged in breast and cervical cancer awareness, provision of free cancer screenings and support to people battling with cancer. This year we will be hosting PINK OCTOBER WALK, RACE & CYCLING against Cancer in order to commemorate the International Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Venue: Alade Market, Allen Avenue, Ikeja Lagos Nigeria.
Date: Saturday, 3rd October, 2015.
The month of October every year is known as Pink Month. The entire month is used for breast cancer awareness, fundraising to support women battling with breast cancer. Encourage breast cancer survivors and conduct free cancer screening for all women.
Celebrities and cancer survivors will lead the Pink October 1km Walk, 2km Race & 5km Cycling against Cancer. Over 700 women will also receive free breast & cervical cancer screening. Other activities lined up for the event are as follows: Dance against Cancer, Celebrities Pitch against Cancer, Signatures against Cancer, Aerobics, Presentations by oncologists on Breast Cancer, Cervical Cancer, Smoking/Alcohol and Breast Cancer, Breast Self Examination guide.
More women are dying of breast cancer in Nigeria because they lack access to accurate information, affordable screening and treatment options. Breast cancer is one of the leading causes of death among women and late detection is a major factor. All Nigerians should play a role by creating awareness. We urge everyone to join us in the Pink October Walk, Race & Cycling against Cancer.
Attendance is FREE (sign up here: http://bit.ly/1iIlbVr )
