Reebok Pink Ribbon Walk 2009

yay! thanks to inspirations from friends like carolyn and sherie, i've decided to sign up for my first 5km charity walk this year too (read: it's a walk i'm doing, not a competitive run.. yet) :)

october is the breast cancer foundation (BCF) month, and also my birthday month. several years ago, i've done a tiny part in raising funds for the BCF singapore through the pledge card (sale of pink ribbons to friends and personal contacts), as well as participating in the public sale of the pink ribbons at their roadshows.

this year, as i turn 30 in october, i wanted to do something meaningful. i've already set a goal to make a donation to charity, donate blood for the first time in my life (if all goes well), and just a few moments ago... added to my list, participate in a charity walk :)

so come 3 october (2 saturdays from now), join me at the Reebok Pink Ribbon Walk 2009 at east coast park - the playground @ Big Splash, 8:00am - 11:00am. as i'm late to this, there's only a very short time left before the online registration closes. so hurry, sign up too - before end of 20 september 2009, sunday (that's tomorrow!)

choose from two categories:
  • 5km women's competitive run - registration fee S$40; or
  • 5km pink ribbon leisure walk (open to women, men and children) - registration fee S$35
click here for event details

for added incentive, if you're like me who love most things pink *smile*, you'd be happy to know that all participants of the walk/run are eligible for the
Reebok bundle buy promotion of 1 pink top + 1 bottom + 1 pair of shoes at a special price of S$100! (usual S$204.90).

find out more news and activities in october for BCF.

ps: carolyn, sherie - you keen to join this too? :)
