Every year, BRECAN marks the month with our popular signature outdoor event, JOG FOR LIFE in all BRECAN State chapters.
Why do we jog since 2002?
1. To raise breast health awareness so that the public especially women can be knowledgeable about the disease and it’s signs and symptoms and go to hospital early instead of going to the mountain to pray. YOU CANNOT PRAY AWAY BREAST CANCER!!!
2. To raise money to support the cause and patients. The easiest way to support is by buying the jog for life outfit- Tshirt and cap
3. To showcase survivorship as survivors participate in the event to demonstrate that breast cancer is not a death sentence.
4. To promote exercise as a healthy lifestyle.
What started in Ibadan in 2002 with less than 100 people now attracts over 10,000 participants annually. These are people from all walks of life, young and old, who find jog for life as a fun-filled outdoor event and a wonderful way to relax on a Saturday morning.
BRECAN Oyo State chapter takes the lead on Saturday, October 5, 2019.
