Yayasan Pita Merah Muda Bali, or better known as Bali Pink Ribbon (BPR), has officially launched registration and fundraising for the 10th Annual 5KM Fun Walk and Run. The event will be held Saturday, October 20, 2018 in ITDC area Nusa Dua. The Walk provides BPR with significant funds to support grants to local health care providers who provide life-saving breast health services to those most in need.
Participants can walk, jog, run, volunteer or donate to help BPR save lives and provide critical care and support. Activities include free breast screening for participants, food trucks, market stall, live music entertainment, and memorial line. Great prizes are available for grabs, main prize one Kawasaki trail motorbike, cash prize and vouchers for best costume. Tickets are sold at 200K for run, including BIB, t-shirt and medal, and 150K for walk including BIB and t-shirt.
Bali Pink Ribbon has, for the last 10 years, brought a hugely positive change for the women and families of Bali. Through media campaigns, organised screenings and outreach programs they have lifted the awareness of breast cancer on the island, even to Bali’s far-off rural areas. The Bali Pink Ribbon Fun Walk and Run, which they have been doing since 2009, is held in in October during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Founder of the organisation, Mrs Gaye Warren, a breast cancer survivor herself, was inspired by the Pink Ribbon Walks found in the UK where she hails from, and thus started a similar event here in sunny Bali.
