With thousands of women succumbing to breast cancer every year, it is no surprise
that the condition remains to be the top killer of Filipino women. Anyone can easily fall prey
to this deadly disease—making it every individual’s responsibility to support the fight against breast cancer.
Avon, the foremost corporate advocate of this disease, continues to invite everyone
to be a positive part of the fight to save women’s lives with its annual Kiss Goodbye
to Breast Cancer
 fundraising event. Since its Philippine launch in 2002, it has been
Avon KGBC’s mission to help provide access to care and support to medically under-served women.
In celebration of its 125th anniversary, the company for women brings more excitement
to its annual walk and run events with its campaign Race to 125,000 Kisses. For 2011,
Avon is inviting everyone to work together to build the giant pink ribbon through their
“Kisses of Support”.
Participation in the annual event translates into a Kiss donation for all breast cancer victims. Your Kiss via a Kiss Card, which will be included in the KGBC shirt for the walk participants and race kit for the run participants, will be numbered and counted to fulfill the 125,000 target.
The Race to 125,000 Kisses, consisting of the 3K walk, 5K and 10K run events, encourages the public to walk and the growing community of runners in the Philippines to actively show their commitment for the cause. Registration fee of P500.00 and P650.00 respectively, qualifies individuals to receive the Avon KGBC Race Kit, which already includes a singlet,
race number and giveaway. To join the walk, purchase of the KGBC shirt at P220.00 serves as your registration already. The KGBC shirt will be available from your Avon Representative beginning September 1, 2011. Proceeds from the event, which will be held at the SM Mall of Asia Open Grounds, will go to PGH Breast Care Center and selected provincial hospitals.
