RAIN or hail, the Fiji Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee (FASANOC) Women in Sports Commission 'Walk and Talk' is set to take place tomorrow at Sukuna Park.
The annual event, which is held in partnership with the International Olympic Committee and supported by the Fiji Cancer Society, Westpac and the Ministry of Health, will raise awareness on breast cancer as well as women in sport.
Women in Sports Fiji chairperson Susie Yee said they were anticipating a good turnout.
She said the event would start with the registration at 7.30am and the walk commencing at 8am.
"A nominal entry fee of $2 per adult is being charged that will be donated to the Fiji Cancer Society. Children are free. Early birds on the day will receive a giveaway of a T-shirt, lei or water bottle," Yee said.
Fiji Cancer Society president Nirmala Nambiar said they would hold the Fiji Cancer Society Bra art competition and exhibition at the adjacent DeVos on the Park (formerly JJ's).
Nambiar encouraged the participants to wear pink to show their support for the fight against breast cancer.
"There will be sugar and blood test done and also arrangements can be made for breast test," Nambiar added.
Yee requested shop owners in Suva to decorate their shops using pink colours in a show of support.
She added the survivors of breast cancer would also share their personal stories.
"Various activities include a quiz night, fashion night, 30 per cent off on mammogram tests at the Suva Private Hospital, through an appointment, as well a ball night have been organised by the Fiji Cancer Society to help promote breast cancer awareness."
Last year's Walk and Talk event attracted about 500 participants.
