National cancer society Malaysia (NCSM) provided free clinical breast examination (CBE) on the event day, while also educating attendees about the importance of early detection. This is because the survival rate for breast cancer is as high as 85 per cent, with appropriate treatment. Kenneth Low, a nutritionist from NCSM shared about nutrient consumption. Hiba Abdul Rahman, breast cancer survivor and her husband, Fareez Shah were also invited to share about the journey of breast cancer recovery.
A Pinky Charity auction was held right after Pinky Run on 14th Oct, a charity branded luxuries goods auction donated by personage such as Marion Caunter, and Emily Loo, Founder of Beaute Library. The total charity auction hosted by Fara Fauzana successfully raised a good sum of money. Over 40 vendors joined the charity bazaar.
During the launch, “I’m deeply surprised by the overwhelming numbers of participants to the Pinky Run regardless of gender, religion to join for the worthy cause of breast cancer!” said Wilson Lee, Managing Director of Beaute Library. “Breast cancer remains a major killer among Malaysian women. According to national cancer statistics, approximately one in 19 Malaysians is at risk of developing the disease. Through the event, we would like to contribute back to the society by partnering with NCSM to raise fund, to provide free breast screening for those who are from a less privileged family.”
This event has successfully gathered over 2,500 participants and has raised at least RM10,000 for National Cancer Society Malaysia (NCSM) to provide free breast screening.
