Join Redditch MP and wear it pink for Breast Cancer Campaign this October
8:30am Thursday 20th September 2012 in News
REDDITCH MP Karen Lumley is backing the fight against breast cancer by taking part in Breast Cancer Campaign’s award winning fundraiser, ‘wear it pink’ day, and wants constituents to join her.
Now in its 10th year, wear it pink, on Friday, October 26, will see supporters from all over the country in schools, colleges and businesses embracing the event’s new theme, superheroes.
The theme stems from the charity’s belief that everybody who joins the fight – from people affected by breast cancer, to Breast Cancer Campaign scientists and all wear it pink participants – is a superhero.
Breast Cancer Campaign is asking everyone to pull on something pink and donate £2, whether it’s a superhero cape, pink socks or pink pants you wear over your tights, everyone can help the charity achieve its target of raising £2 million, so it can continue to fund ground-breaking research.
Mrs Lumley said: “Every year in the UK, around 48,000 women and 340 men are diagnosed with breast cancer. Therefore, I would be delighted if people would join me on wear it pink day on October 26, so that Breast Cancer Campaign can continue to fund research which will one day lead to a cure.”
To take part in the UK’s original and best pink day, see wearitpink.co.uk and register to receive a free fundraising pack now.
Vanish is backing the fight against breast cancer for the third year running by raising an incredible £250,000 for wear it pink.
