The event aims to continue spreading and disseminating information about breast cancer.

According to Dr. Peter Mancao, one of the organizers of the road race, since they started the run, they have been receiving more simple cases of breast cancer.

Dr. Jose Tan, president of the Philippine College of Surgeons Central Visayas Chapter, said that there is a calendar for cancer awareness and October has been the designated month for breast cancer.

Those interested can register at the Think Pink Desk that will be set up at the Active Zone of Ayala Center Cebu.

Mancao added that they are also the first race to implement a no plastic policy so participants are encouraged to bring their own hydration kits.

Although no cash prizes will be given away, special tokens will be given to the top 5 winners per category. /bmjo
