Avon Pink War, a walk and run against breast cancer, was launched on September 4 with Avon Philippines President and General Manager, Julie Tatarczuk, welcoming everyone and sharing the overwhelming response from their advocacy partners in fulfilling the mission to increase awareness of the disease and help save lives. Tatarczuk declared, “I am grateful for the opportunity to stand before all of you today and invite you on
Avon’s important mission.
This mission entails all of us to join a war. A war all of us need to be a part
of because it can hurt the people we love. It is time that we fight back. It is
time we provide people with the ammunition to survive the disease.”
Breast cancer remains women’s toughest enemy and
Avon, the company for women, is determined to see an end to the disease with its Kiss Goodbye to Breast Cancer (KGBC) 2014 campaign. As the world’s leading champion against breast cancer, Avon is gearing up for its biggest fight yet, as it stages the Avon Pink Walk and Run (WAR) Against Breast Cancer for the cause’s 12th year here in the Philippines.
