Lipa City joins Avon in Race to 125,000 Kisses for Breast Cancer
(Southern Luzon’s premier city to hold Walk event at SM Lipa on October 2)
Breast cancer is not something to be taken lightly. With thousands of women succumbing to it year after year, it is clear that every individual — not just the sufferers themselves — needs to step up and take part in the fight against the killer disease.
As the foremost corporate advocate of breast cancer and in celebration of its 125th anniversary, Avon once again rallies support for the cause with its 2011 Kiss Goodbye to Breast Cancer (KGBC) campaign.
Dubbed Race to 125,000 Kisses, this year’s walk and run events invites everyone to work together to build the giant pink ribbon through their “Kisses of Support”.
Being one of the key locations for this year’s KGBC events, Lipa City, Batangas, will be holding its own Walk on October 2 at SM Lipa City. To join, simply purchase the 2011 KGBC T-shirt (which comes with a Kiss Bag Tag) for only P220 from your Avon representative beginning September 1. For every shirt you buy, P20 will be donated to the Philippine General Hospital Breast Care Center and selected provincial
Participation in the annual event translates into a Kiss donation for all breast cancer victims. Your Kiss via a Kiss Card, which will be included in the walk shirt for walk participants, will be numbered and counted to fulfill the 125,000 target.
The chance to take a stand and make a difference in the lives of Filipino women is now in your hands. Get on your mark, and get ready to Race to 125,000 Kisses. With your support and participation, you are making a vital contribution to the battle against breast cancer.
