Avon Philippines has teamed up with Color Manila to hold the Pink Light Night Run and Walk for Breast Cancer happening on October 19, 2019 at the Filinvest City Event Grounds, Alabang.
It’s October, and that means it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Did you know that 1 in 13 Filipino women will develop breast cancer? It’s one of the leading causes of death among Filipinas. The Philippines also has the highest prevalence of breast cancer among women. 🙁
But you know what saves lives? Early detection through regular self-examination. Avon through its Avon Breast Cancer Promise wants to make sure every woman is aware of the disease and how to fight it. Avon has also partnered with the Philippine Cancer Society to create the Avon-Philippine General Hospital Breast Care Center, which provides health care and assistance such as free breast health guidance, consultation, and check-ups.
When you join the Pink Light Night Run and Walk, your purchase of your race kit contributes to donating and assisting the Philippine Cancer Society. Avon also hopes that by holding the Pink Light Night Run, they can raise awareness and help remind Filipinos to know the risks, see the signs, and take action when it comes to breast cancer.
Like in all Color Manila run events, kits regardless of distance are priced according to inclusions. So you can run 3K, 5K, or 10K as a:
