Rebecca Evans AM, Assembly Member for Gower, is supporting Breast Cancer Now’s wear it pink fundraiser again this year. The fundraising day takes place on Friday 19 October to raise money for vital breast cancer research.
Rebecca Evans, who is a Breast Cancer Now Ambassador, is encouraging her constituents in Gower to join her, alongside thousands of others across the UK, to sign up and take part in wear it pink which takes place during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and to date has raised over £31million towards Breast Cancer Now’s important work.
Anyone can take part in wear it pink, whether at work, school or in your community. All you need to do is wear something pink, or hold a pink themed event, and donate to Breast Cancer Now. With every penny raised, fundraisers across the UK will be helping the charity achieve its aim that, if we all act now, by 2050 everyone who develops breast cancer will live, and live well.
Mrs Evans, said: “Breast cancer is still the most common form of cancer in the UK.
“Each year around 11,500 women and 80 men lose their lives to the disease. That’s why I’m so passionate about encouraging constituents to take part in wear it pink day on Friday 19 October.
“As a Breast Cancer Now Ambassador I am proud to raise awareness of the impact of the disease locally, and to support and advocate for Breast Cancer Now’s research.”
