WILL YOU WALK WITH US ON 22nd OCTOBER 2011 IN NUSA DUA?
Pink Ribbon Fever is spreading like wildfire through Bali, as momentum builds up for the third annual Pink Ribbon Walk at Nusa Dua on 22nd October. Given the outstanding success of the previous Pink Ribbon Walks, the 2011 Event, planned for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, aims to attract participants from all over the world. With overwhelming support from local businesses, community groups and international hotels, the 2011 Pink Ribbon Walk is certain to become one of the most successful fundraising events to be carried out in Bali. It is hoped that over 500 people will walk the course this year in support of women who have battled breast cancer and for a future where cancer can no longer take their lives.
WHY WALK IN BALI?
Inspired by this vision, a committee of local women, some of whom have been affected by breast cancer themselves, established the first Bali Pink Ribbon Walk in 2009. Supported by the Bali International Women’s Association, the Pink Ribbon Walk aims to improve awareness about breast cancer, as well as raise funds towards education and patient support programs in Bali.
WALKING THE COURSE
The 2011 Walk will start and finish in the scenic grounds of Nusa Dua. Participants may choose to run or walk along the four-kilometer route through the beautiful gardens and along the beach paths of the Nusa Dua Peninsula. The Walk event includes an exciting program of live music, spa cabins, crafts bazaar, fabulous raffle prizes and international food stalls sponsored by leading hotels of Nusa Dua and Tanjung Benoa.
By purchasing a ticket and joining in the walk or the events planned, buying pink or simply making a donation, you are helping to empower individuals and communities to increase breast cancer awareness in Indonesia.
Even if you don’t fancy walking, come along anyway to support us. There are some great raffle prizes and an auction with vouchers for leading restaurants and hotels. We look forward to seeing you there!
