About 18,000 Pinoys heeded Avon’s call to Step Out! against breast cancer on October 3 at the SM Mall of Asia and SM Bacolod. In the metro, Avon’s Kiss Goodbye to Breast Cancer (KGBC) campaign this year featured a walk--a regular part of the KGBC--and a five-kilometer run.
KGBC Ambassador and actress Iza Calzado hosted the program, along with GMA-7 media personalities Arnold Clavio, Susan Enriquez, Pia Archangel, Lyn Ching-Pascual, Love Añover and Luane Dy. Cosmo Centerfold hunk Rocco Nacino, actress Chynna Ortaleza and Sex Bomb dancer Aira Bermudez led the warm-up session. Walking to fight breast cancer were the guests of honor: 2010 Miss Universe fourth runner-up Venus Raj and the United States Ambassador Harry Thomas Jr.
The next Step Out! event is on October 17 at SM Baguio. To join the walk, purchase the limited edition KGBC shirt for P149 (P20 goes to the Philippine General Hospital Breast Care Center and selected provincial hospitals). To join the run, pay the P500 registration fee (inclusive of a singlet, race number and giveaway) at these participating Avon offices: Taft, Shaw, EDSA and Makati Head Office. Cash prizes are in store for the top three winners in the male and female categories.
