Think pink in preparation for Action Cancer's 10k bra walk

The launch of Action Cancer’s Bra Walk

HAVE your bras at the ready as Belfast prepares to turn pink for the return of The Bra Walk. Action Cancer's 10k walk taking place on Friday June 14 in aid of the charity's life-saving breast screening service.

Now in its fifth year, The Bra Walk, sponsored by SuperValu, will begin at Belfast City Hall at 7pm. The charity is encouraging men, women and children of all ages to get dressed in pink and take part in the fun-filled family event, helping to raise vital funds and awareness of breast cancer.

All participants are encouraged to raise a minimum of £80 in sponsorship, the amount it costs Action Cancer to provide digital breast screening for one women aged 40-49 and over 70.

Every year Action Cancer aims to breast screen 10,000 women at Action Cancer House and on board the Big Bus. For every 1,000 women screened, an average of five or six breast cancers are detected – hopefully at an early and treatable stage.

Online registration is now open with an early bird rate priced of £9 per adult and £4 per child; everyone taking part will receive The Bra Walk bag for life and complementary pink T-shirt.
