I just had a run tonight and saw several residents and fellows running around the campus.
Is this in preparation for the PINK RUN?! Maybe.
I am supposed to join this fund raising activity this coming Sunday, however I realized that I will be out of the hospital not until 8AM of the said date of the run. Boohoo.
Breast cancer runs in our family and as a young physician, I would like to extend awareness regarding the disease that kills many women and to some extent even men; to make people realize the burden of this disease may bring to patients and family members; to echo that breast cancer may be prevented and detected early; that we have improving/medical advances regarding treatment of this disease process; and to help the affected marginalized individuals of this malignancy.
“The Pink Run: D’Feeting Breast Cancer” is an advocacy run organized by the Philippine Society of General Suregons Metro Manila Chapter (PSGS MMC). It will be held at the McKinley Hills grounds, Taguig City on October 17, 2010. This is a running activity aimed to raise funds and awareness against breast cancer. The objective is to gather funding for the treatment of indigent patients suffering from this dreaded disease as well as focus attention on breast cancer during and after the event through free breast clinics, educational campaigns, information drives and lay fora. October is considered to be breast cancer awareness month and as such we have chosen to hold it during that time. The event will offer distances of 3K, 5K, 10K and 15K to choose from.
