Parliament in Pink (Sort of) for Breast Cancer Awareness
On a flight back from Toronto earlier this month, the unmistakable pink outfits worn by the flight attendants immediately reminded me that October in many places marks a month of awareness for the cause of addressing breast cancer issues. To participate in that awareness campaign, I thought I’d share information on a handful of events in Canada to promote breast cancer awareness. These include:
- Parliament being bathed in pink lights in an October 7 awareness promotion sponsored by Estee Lauder.
- The Run for the Cure in over 60 communities across Canada took place on October 3.
- Niagara Falls illuminated in pink lights on October 1.
- The Weekend to End Women’s Cancers (actually occurs in various places throughout the summer).
More information on breast cancer issues can be obtained by visiting the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation at www.cbcf.org.
