On October 7 the 9th Wizz Air Kyiv City Marathon will include a charity run Avon Pink Run of 5 km.
1,000 participants will run to fight the breast cancer. The entire entry fee will be transferred to the purchase of a digital mammography machine for a regional state medical institution, which would make early diagnostics of breast cancer more affordable to people living in regions of Ukraine.
The thousand of participants of Avon Pink Run will include not only women, but also men. Getting brave and taking up the race is an important step for new athletes. Finishing the course, you get a victory not only for yourself, but for all women of Ukraine. Each participant of the race will get a finisher’s medal.
“The Avon Pink Run course has one goal – to make women of Ukraine healthier and happier! Last year all the funds received from the course were transferred to the purchase of a digital mammography machine. In the selection process we received about 20 applications from various regions of Ukraine, where the situation with modern equipment is close to a catastrophe. Lack of equipment decreases the level of diagnostics and makes it impossible to fight breast cancer in its early stages. This is why we made a decision to run again! For every woman, her health and the happy smiles of her children! We would like every woman to have a chance to go through examination and feel protected and healthy. All the funds raised from this course will be transferred to the purchase of a new digital mammography machine. JOIN US, because You can change life for better!”- says Yelyzaveta Korobchenko, the General Manager of Avon Ukraine and Georgia.
The race Avon Pink Run is held within the global charity program of the Avon company “Together Against Breast Cancer”, aimed to improve the conditions of diagnostics of breast cancer in its early stages.
