The PINK RUN 2014

Did you know that breast cancer is the number one killer in Filipino women today? Studies also show that the Philippines has the most number of deaths caused by breast cancer. And not to forget, breast cancer afflicts not only women but men too. When men does get it, it is often too late for them. These are just some of the reasons why the Philippine Society of General Surgeons (PSGS), for the fourth year now, decided to hold a race – the Pink Run.

The Pink Run 2014 will be on October 5 at the Venice Pizza in McKinley Hill, Taguig City and is meant to raise awareness and gather funds for breast cancer research and treatment. This advocacy of the PSGS receives a much-needed boost this year as top athletic performance brand Under Armour joins the cause.

Together with the presentation of the running event to the members of media, Under Armour’s “I Will What I Want” women’s campaign has been launched together with pretty campaign ambassadors, Mia Cabalfin, Natasha Alquiros and Gretchen Ho among others. “I Will What I Want” is a movement that pushes forward a new standard of beauty that goes beyond face value – a standard that regards a woman for her strength, tenacity and toughness amid insurmountable odds. Perfect description fit for those who are fighting against breast cancer.

As Under Armour’s campaign and PSGS’ advocacy comes to perfect alignment, UA is out to provide full backing to the running event which is open to both male and female of all ages. Apart from this, UA will donate 10% of all their sales from the Under Armour Power in Pink women’s performance line to the PSGS.
