Campbell River Curves is raising awareness for breast cancer for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

  • Oct. 18, 2011 5:00 p.m.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Campbell River Curves is working to raise awareness in women about the life-saving importance of risk management, early detection and treatment.

Throughout the month, the women’s fitness centre is waiving the joining fee for new members who show proof of a mammogram within the past year or make a $25 donation to breast cancer research.

In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, each participating Curves centre will focus on three important goals in supporting this annual campaign:

* Helping women learn the facts about breast cancer and the importance of early detection.

* Encouraging women to work out three times a week to help reduce their risk of developing breast cancer.

* Participating in fundraising efforts to support the research and outreach efforts of the Canadian Cancer Society and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
