October is the official Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so get out your pink clothing and accessories, go online and find a way to volunteer for, or donate to, this worthy cause. Here at Atlantica Hotel Halifax, we’re proud to be involved in raising awareness for breast cancer a couple of different ways this October.
First up,Â we are a sponsor of Run for the CureÂ once again, which is happening at the Halifax Common on Sunday, October 5.Â We’ll be there providing box lunches for the volunteers, as well as giving away some prizes. We also have a team in the event. Heading to Halifax to attend or participate in Run for the Cure? Ask us about our special room rates.
On October 17, we’re playing host to the 10th annual AÂ Toast to the Coast. This event is put on by a group of students from the Rowe School of Business, and this year their goal is to raise $30,000 — putting them at a ten-year total achievement of $100,000 raised!
“Complete with dinner, live entertainment courtesy of theÂ Geordie Brown Trio,Â guest speakers, live and silent auctions and heart warming support from the Halifax community,Â A Toast to the CoastÂ is a worthwhile way to support the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation andÂ have fun doing it.” (atoasttothecoast.ca) Buy your tickets here, there are discounted rates for students.
So find a way to pitch in this October and help raise awareness (and funds) for breast cancer, a disease that will affect 1 in 9 Canadian women in their lifetime.
