TREASURE OUR CHESTS & INCREASE YOUR STEPS
A message from the Social Committee:
As October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we’re hoping to enlist your help to shine a light on Breast Cancer Awareness and raise much needed funds for the National Breast Cancer Research Institute.
Breast cancer doesn’t discriminate and effects both women and men. 1 in 7 women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year, and approximately 16 men. Early detection is key to a successful treatment outcome, so for the month of October we will be sharing regular updates and content to encourage all our staff both female and male to regularly check yourself.
The role of the National Breast Cancer Research Institute is paramount, as its research can help to ascertain the causes and factors that influence breast cancer and therefore help to develop effective screening, treatments, and medication to combat it.
So, here’s where you come in! During the winter months, we tend to be more couch potatoes than fitness fanatics so to get us all moving we are hoping to embark upon a 10K steps a day challenge culminating with a fabulous Blush Brunch on the 26th of October in Dublin, Limerick, and Cork.
We hope that as many of you will participate as possible and have one small ask of a €10 donation to enter the steps challenge with a “Booby prize” for the overall winner.
You can donate to our just giving page through the following link: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/innopharma-team2
Reminder to everyone to track to their steps here. Tracking ends on the 25th of October so let's work together to get as many steps as possible in.
