Fight for the women in your life, join the Avon Walk & Run AgainstBreast Cancer


Breast cancer may not be largely a man's concern (although there are cases where the disease affect men too) but the women in our lives are at risk.  That's why we should share the fight against breast cancer, considered as the no. 1 killer disease among Filipinas, as there will always be a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a colleague and more that may face or are already facing the challenge of breast cancer.

Avon has always been in the forefront in the crusade against breast cancer through its Kiss Goodbye to Breast Cancer (KGBC) campaign. Now on its 13th year in the Philippines, the “company for women” is inviting everyone to show to the world that its bigger than the disease through this year’s theme “I Share the Fight Against Breast Cancer.”

Calling everyone regardless of gender, age and background to step up and step out for a purpose. This October 10, 2015, go the distance to share the fight against breast cancer at the SM Mall of Asia Grounds.

KGBC's ambassadors for this year, Jennylyn Mercado and Rocco Nacino, will join in making each stride our contribution in winning the fight for those affected by breast cancer.

Be part of creating a compassionate difference as early as July 25, 2015. Register between July 25 to August 16 to avail the early bird rates at PHP 550 and PHP 700 for the 5K and 10K distances respectively. Missed the promo? Catch the regular fees from August 17 to October 6 at PHP 600 and PHP 750 for the 5K and 10K distances correspondingly. Fees are inclusive of a race kit which includes a singlet and your race number.

Run and share the fight against breast cancer, and get a chance to win PHP 5,000 (1st Place), PHP 3,000 (2nd Place) and PHP 2,000 (3rd Place) in the men’s and women’s category. 

Enlist at Chris Sports outlets (SM City BF, Glorietta 3, SM Mall of Asia, SM City North EDSA and SM Megamall), Secondwind running stores (Ortigas Home Depot and UP Teacher’s Village) or visit www.avon.com.ph.

Sharing the fight with Avon Philippines and the community are the Philippine Cancer Society, GMA Network, SM Mall of Asia, SM Cares, UnitedHealth Group, Ford Philippines, and Chris Sports.  Proceeds of the run will go to the Breast Care Center of at the Philippine General Hospital (PGH). The center, established via KGBC, has aided in providing free medical consultation to indigent Filipino women and has established a regular support group for patients and survivors.

Our active participation, whether in the 5k or 10k run, will be a significant contribution in bringing back courage, strength and hope to those affected by breast cancer.

Run away from breast cancer. Run for those affected from it. Run for a purpose!
