What is the Big Pink 2018 and when is it? The Big Pink 2018 is on October 13th, and is an annual event day, usually in October but not always the same date, a day when people dress in pink and have pink themed events such as coffee mornings to support Breast Cancer awareness.
The event day is arranged by and in aid of Breast Cancer Care, who will provide starter and event kits if you decide to have a Big Pink event. You have to sign up at the Breast Cancer Care website. The kits for your Big Pink contain pink balloons, stickers, materials and games to be used as part of your event.
Big Pink events can be held at home, at work or in the community, whatever suits you best, and money can be raised in various ways, donations, Big Pink Breakfasts, bake sales, especially pink cakes or pink iced cakes, sweepstakes, sponsorship for wearing pink clothing and/or pink wigs, any pink themed event that raises money, even skydiving.
And this day isn’t just for women, any men brave and compassionate enough to go pink for the day can join in, many men do join in, and it isn’t just women who get breast cancer, this is a fundraiser for all sufferers, and it can be a corporate event, with even large firms taking part and having fun. It is a social event, and a great photo opportunity as well as fundraiser.
The money raised provides support for breast cancer sufferers including a free helpline and group support.
