Calling all superheroes!
Fun, fundraising and fabulous outfitsBreast Cancer Campaign’s fundraising event wear it pink, supported by Vanish, is back on Friday 26 October 2012, and this year the event is shaping up to be bigger and better than ever before! The new theme, superheroes, comes from the charities belief that everybody who joins the fight – from people affected by breast cancer, to scientists and all wear it pink participants – is a superhero.
This year is the 10th anniversary of wear it pink so register today, circle 26 October in your diary and tell everyone you know that they can BE PART OF THE CURE for breast cancer by doing the same.
wear it pink is simple and fun – just pay £2, wear pink and have fun taking action. You can go as pink or as superhero as you like! What’s best about the day is that, with the help of hundreds of thousands of people across the UK and Ireland, we’ve already raised more than £22,500,000 to fund Breast Cancer Campaign’s world class research. This year, we’d love to reach the £25 million milestone.
To take part in the UK’s original and best pink day visit wearitpink.co.uk and register to receive your free fundraising pack now. Vanish is backing the fight against breast cancer for the third year running by raising an incredible £250,000 for wear it pink.
