First and for all I want to thank Jessying for inviting me to this meaningful walkathon held at Putrajaya last Sunday.
Kiss Goodbye To Breast Cancer Charity Walk by Avon. 



Kiss Goodbye To Breast Cancer Charity Walk By Avon
Date: 23 September 2012, 7am
Venue: Precinct 3, Putrajaya (In front of Bangunan Perbadanan Putrajaya)


The charity run was in conjunction with the global celebrations of Avon's 20th Breast Cancer Crusade anniversary. Avon Malaysia proudly joins more than 58 countries in hosting its second Avon Walk Around The World for Breast Cancer event. Held at Malaysia's famous federal administrative centre and tourist attraction, Putrajaya, roads became a sea of pink as thousands flooded Precinct 2 and 3.

Madam Siow Fei Fong, a breast cancer survivor and mother of 3 young kids, took to the stage in sharing her experiences, followed by the presentation of donation cheques amounting to RM50000 from Avon to Breast Cancer Welfare Association )BCWA) and Pink Ribbon Wellness Foundation. 



I am so proud of him!

After the walk ended, we were treated to a whole lot of water, 100 plus, milo and even cereal with milk. There were subsequent performances after the run. The main buzz after the walk came from a session of flash mob dance organized by Avon headquarters staff as well as a "Go Bald" session, courtesy of professional hairdressers Michael & Guys Hair Salon and Academy. Our fellow blogger Daniel Chiam from room8five.comtook up the challenge and shaved it all off. 

BIG ROUND APPLAUSE FOR THIS GUY, Daniel from room8five.com


The walk is currently being considered for endorsement by the Malaysia Book of Records for the Largest Participation Breast Cancer Charity Walk in Malaysia. Now that's a pretty cool record if you ask me. Since the launch of Avon Breast Cancer Crusade in 1992, Avon's breast cancer programs in 58 countries have donated more than USD740 million for research and advancing access to care, regardless of a person's ability to pay.

Kiss Goodbye to Breast Cancer!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Muah!
