Proposed programmes for 2020 Pink October in BRECAN Imo Chapter

The Breast Cancer Association of Nigeria, Imo Chapter  proposes to mark 2020 Pink October in Imo state. This is in line with her continued commitment to join her sister chapters in Nigeria to celebrating 'Jog 4 Life' activities marking the October Breast Awareness Campaign (Pink-October) worldwide.

However, due to the restrictions on crowd gathering by the federal and state government in the country caused by the prevalent of COVID-19 pandemic, BRECAN Imo chapter resolved to curtailing the vast activities that are traditionally featured in the event  in obedience to the regulations and safety measures stipulated for public gathering in the state.

In this light, we proposed to carry out this year's Pink October programme in Imo state as follows:
=> Tues. 20th Aug. 2020:  Radio Talkshow with Darling FM, Owerri (with a maximum of 5 BRECAN Imo members). This will involve an on-air sensitization of the public on breast cancer awareness tips.
=> Wed. 22nd Aug. 2020: Radio Talkshow with Zanders FM, Owerri (with a maximum of 5 BRECAN Imo members in attendance). This will feature an on-air enlightenment and interactive sessions with the public on cancer health issues.
=> Sat. 24th Aug. 2020 {7am-8am}: An early morning jogging exercise from Government House Chapel owerri to Orji Flyover. The jogging will be spiced with music and cancer awareness talks to practically encourage exercise as a healthy lifestyle as well as spreading the gospel of early detection to other members of the public that could not be reached via radio. (to be participated by a maximum of 50 persons drawn from BRECAN Imo members and few invited dignitaries.)
=> Sat. 24th Aug. 2020 {8am-9am}: a brief sit-out with some of the invited dignitaries/stakeholders to discuss the way forward and raise funds to support the cancer patients. (This will comprise not more than 50 persons, while observing the ethics of wearing face-masks and keeping social distance).
Howbeit, branded t-shirts and stickers inscribed with cancer message shall be spread on/before the activity days to continually spread the message beyond the Pink October.
NB: This programme is subject to amendment as the executive members of BRECAN Imo chapter continue to dialogue on this.
