The Safe & Sound Pink Walkathon is an annual charitable, non-competitive event aimed at raising both awareness and funds for breast cancer.

I was a first timer participant of this event and i was so surprised of the numbers of people who participated. I felt so glad by simply looking at them taking few steps to fight for breast cancer. I myself, can say that i'm not really conscious about breast health maybe because i'm not a mom yet coz what i know women tend to learn about it when they begin breastfeeding their baby.

See those thousands of women, men and children who participated the 3.6km walk.

Sheng, just an FYI, di lang mommies ang nagkaka breast cancer. It can happen to a single without kids woman too. Just a precaution, yo can do a self breast exam, or if you are feeling something, check with your doctor. I had my mammogram last May just to make sure since I been having pain on my breast, but it turned out normal, now I can breathe..
