With less than 75 days to go, Lagos is going to witness an unprecedented buzz of breast cancer awareness as Sebeccly Cancer Care wraps up plans to illuminate Lagos pink through the Light Lagos Pink™ campaign hosted in partnership with the Lagos State Government.
This year’s campaign is the biggest breast cancer event which comprises a series of community events, social media drive, several buildings illuminating pink which will culminate to an attempt to break the Guinness world record tagged the #12KLLP on the 10th of October, 2015.The #12KLLP will feature over 12,000 people (men and women) wearing pink to form the largest human pink ribbon. Currently we have mobilized and registered over 6,000 individuals, 42 team captains, 23 volunteers and 10 corporate organizations: with growing support from the media, corporate organizations and Lagos state, the #12KLLP is strategically placed to break the current record that stands at 6,700.Our partners are Lagos state Govement,Nigerian Red Cross, National Youth Service Corps, Boys Brigade, First Bank, Bristow Helicopters, JNCI, Airtel, Leadway Assurance,Dealdey.com, Bella Naija, Silver Bird Television, Rhythm FM, Connect.com, Genevieve magazine, Adeedas foods Tertiary and religious institutions.
We urge individuals and corporate organizations to come out and stand with us and 12,000 Nigerians to end breast cancer as we bring to light the plight of patients and the high cost of treatment and also raise funds to support treatment of cancer patients. If you have ever been affected by breast cancer, lost a dear one or know someone fighting breast cancer or you just want to support a good cause, the #12KLLP is a great way to help more patients survive breast cancer.
