HÀ NỘI — The first ever annual Breast Cancer Zumbathon aiming to raise money for disadvantaged women fighting breast cancer will be held on October 30.
A fun and energetic afternoon of zumba with prizes for the winners, the event will also include a raffle. More important, through the event, the organiser expects to raise awareness of the cancer.
Every year over 1.7 million women are diagnosed with breast cancer worldwide and currently it is the most common cancer amongst women in Việt Nam. In 2012, over 11,000 Vietnamese women were diagnosed, with 30 per cent already in the advanced stages of the disease, meaning mortality rates are high.
Organised by International SOS Hanoi in partnership with Intercontinental Hotel Hanoi, Yury Rockit and La Zum3, the event will last from 2pm until 5pm in the Grand Ballroom of the Intercontinental Hanoi.
Tickets cost VNĐ500,000 per entrant (including entrance pack. Free for kids under 10) and are on sale at International SOS Vietnam, 51 Xuân Diệu Street. — VNS
