The emblem of the Pink Ribbon is gaining ground across the world wherever supporters gather in the fight against breast cancer. Here in Monaco a number of new initiatives have been devised in support of the charity, the latest of which is Monaco's first ever Pink Ribbon walk in March.
The Pink Ribbon Walk is a simple and effective community activity which testifies to the support for all those women whose lives are affected by cancer, at the same time visibly spreading awareness of the cause - and of course providing a great opportunity to get together with friends and enjoy a healthy day out.
When a woman is afflicted with breast cancer, sons, husbands, fathers and brothers are also affected so it's just as crucial for men to participate in the walk as a sign of support and strength for the women in their lives. So if you have the desire to celebrate the fighting spirit of a victim or survivor, educate men and women in the benefits of early detection and screening, or simply to help create solidarity between victims and survivors, then the First Pink Ribbon Monaco Walk is for you.
All our readers are encouraged to sign up, be a part of history, and take steps towards finding a cure! Just rifle through your wardrobe for the pinkest outfit you can find, and join in this amazingly worthwhile event. As an added incentive, Monaco jewellers SomarinA
are donating one of their beautiful pieces as a prize for the participant judged to be the 'pinkest' on the day!
Finally, to add to the special atmosphere, event partners Cosmopolitan
are offering a special lunch menu from 12pm on 18 March, and there is a complimentary glass of champagne if you are taking part in the Walk.
Registration for the Pink Ribbon Monaco Walk is €30, and the documentation can be found at the official page here
