Join the Pink Ribbon Walk to Fight Cancer
Join Bali's War on Cancer by Wearing Pink and Walking the Pink Ribbon Route on Friday. May 8, 2009.
Bali International Women's Association is spearheading the first Pink Ribbon Walk on Friday, May 8, 2009.
The Bali event, part of a world-wide movement to raise funds and awareness of the battle against cancer, will start at 4 p.m. pn May 8th at the Amphitheatre of the Nusa Dua Complex (BTDC) and have participants "walk the pink ribbon" down the paths and beachside broadwalks of Nusa Dua. Entertainment and a mini-bazaar will be held in conjunction with the walk.
Cost of participation is Rp. 250,000 per person (US$22.50) which include snacks and a pink t-shirt.
Participants are encouraged to walk and honor the memory of their own battle with cancer or the struggle against cancer by a friend or family member. All are being asked to write a message of the pink ribbon memorializing their participation for eventual display on a "washing line" at Nusa Dua.
Funds raised will be used to fund a new digital mammography unit to provide more effective screening and a mobile screening unit for cancer prevention.
The Bali Pink Ribbon Walk is being organized by Bali International Women's Association (BIWA), Bali Tourism Development Corporation (BTDC) and the Public Relations Officers Association of Bali Hotels.
