Show your support for breast cancer awareness by participating in our second fun walk on Sunday, October 7th at 7am.
The 5km walk / fun run will be taking place from Davenport Square Shopping Centre in Glenwood, and will follow the route along Bulwer Road, through to Penzance Road, Esther Roberts Road and end back at Davenport Square.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month is observed in October every year. According to the South African National Cancer Registry, one in 27 women in South Africa will be diagnosed with breast cancer, and according to the Cancer Association of South Africa, one in eight stand the chance of getting some type of cancer.
Breast cancer, like other types of cancers, is treatable when detected early. It is important for you to examine your breasts regularly and to go for medical check-ups. Early detection is absolutely crucial in ensuring effective treatment and a positive outcome.
The objective of this walk / fun run is to promote awareness of those with breast cancer who are part of our families and communities and drive the message to promote, as well as create awareness, and encourage women to get checked regularly.
Funds raised at the walk / fun run will go towards fighting against cancer and will be donated to CANSA. Sponsors and supporters of this walk include Green Legends, Quatro Cleaning Services, Curves Gym and the local Councilor.
The first 200 people to register will receive a complimentary CANSA shades of Pink t-shirt - so be sure to get your entry in early.
Cost to enter for the 5km walk / fun run is R100 for adults and R80 for children under 12. Children under 2 years participating are free to enter. So get off your couch and support a worthy cause.
