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.

For more information about activities in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and to learn how to exercise good breast health, please contact Curves at 250-287-8379.
