In an effort to raise funds for the Pink October campaign, the organizing team together with Fleur Cilia Buckett is hosting the Pink October Atlas Motorcycle Ride. The ride will start on Sunday, 11 October at 08.30 am from Golden Sands Beach and finishes at Cavalieri Art Hotel. 

The participation fee is €10 and riders are encouraged to don pink clothing and accessories during the ride. Free Bristot Coffee and biscuits will be served on arrival at Cavalieri Art Hotel. Other food and beverages may also be purchased at the bar. 

This year’s Pink October campaign aims to raise €60,000 from various activities and events held during the month of October. These funds will be used to purchase medical equipment that x-rays breast biopsies through a sophisticated mammogram machine at Mater Dei, thus making surgical removal of tumours more precise. 

Pink October 2015 brings together The Marigold Foundation, Europa Donna Malta, the Association for Breast Cancer, JPA, the majority of Malta’s media houses and numerous partners, to organize one of the biggest philanthropic events in aid of breast cancer research and awareness in Malta. 

Other activities include an awareness campaign at Dukes Shopping Mall in Gozo, a concert by the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra at the Manoel Theatre, Pink Days at work, an art auction, Breast Health Day at St George’s Square in Valletta, a tattoo convention, a public lecture on health promotion and a closing party. There will also be various guest appearances on TV and radio talk shows as well as newspaper and magazine interviews.

A solidarity walk entitled Walk for Life, starting from Piazza Gavino Gulia in Cospicua at 10:00 am and proceeding to SmartCity Malta, will wrap up the campaign events on Sunday, 25 October.
