Dennis Robertson MSP is taking part in Breast Cancer Campaign’s award winning fundraiser, wear it pink day, and wants constituents across Aberdeenshire West to join him.
Now in its 10th year, wear it pink, on Friday, October 26 will see supporters from all over the country in schools, colleges and businesses embracing the event’s new theme, superheroes.
The theme stems from the charity’s belief that everybody who joins the fight is a superhero from people affected by breast cancer, to Breast Cancer Campaign scientists and all wear it pink participants.
Breast Cancer Campaign is asking everyone to pull on something pink and donate £2 whether it’s a superhero cape, pink socks or pink pants you wear over your tights, you can help the charity achieve its target of raising £2 million, so they can continue to fund ground-breaking research.
Dennis Robertson MSP says: “I am delighted to help the campaign again this year, the only day of the year when “Mr Q” can be seen wearing a hat; this is a very serious issue and I urge everyone to get involved.
“Every year in Scotland, almost 4,500 women and 25 men are diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 1,000 will die from the disease. This is why we all need to support wear it pink day on October 26, so that Breast Cancer Campaign can continue to fund research which will one day lead to a cure.”
