wear it pink 2013
wear it pink day was held on Friday 25 October. Britain's biggest, pinkest fundraising day sees friends and colleagues join forces, have fun and do something incredible for women with breast cancer. All you have to do is grab something pink to wear and donate £2 to Breast Cancer Campaign.
Across the UK people wore pink at work, at home or at school. If you missed wear it pink - don't worry you can still get involved in two easy ways:
- Text PINK to 70907 to donate £2
- Donate online
When you take part in wear it pink, you join forces with scientists, researchers, supporters and people affected by breast cancer. Together, we can make real progress in research that saves lives. It's easy to join in, simply get together with your colleagues, friends and family, pull on something pink and raise money for breast cancer research.
We believe everyone who joins the fight is a hero, from people affected by breast cancer, to our scientists and all our amazing fundraisers. In the last ten years, these people have raised more than £23 million to help save lives and you can join them by signing up to be a hero and wear pink to help us make this year's event the biggest and pinkest yet!
Please check out the many ways you can get involved with wear it pink here.
Last year, hundreds of thousands of you got together, put on something pink and raised over £2.1 million to fund breast cancer research. But sadly, one in eight women will still be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. That’s why we
need you and your colleagues to leap into action once again, wear pink and raise as much as possible to fund research that saves lives.
October might seem a long way off but there’s one easy thing we’d really like you to do now.
This year when you register, you’ll receive a personalised poster for your office and entry into a prize draw! Then in September we’ll then send you a fundraising pack full of ideas of how to have fun whilst raising money for breast cancer research.
Together we are a force more powerful than breast cancer.
