Manulife Sponsors Breast-Cancer Awareness in Hong Kong

Manulife Sponsors Breast-Cancer Awareness in Hong Kong – The title of the feed item

Manulife proud to be pink to boost breast-cancer awareness

Hong Kong — Once again, Manulife showed its solid support for the Hong Kong Cancer Fund’s awareness-raising “Dress Pink Day”, with many of its employees turning up to work in something pink — either a complete clothing item or an accessory — and making a donation to the charity.

“At Manulife, we encourage everyone to join us in being proud to be pink and wave the flag for breast-cancer awareness every October. This is a cause that has touched many of us one way or another and we are all committed to giving something back and supporting the free breast-cancer services that will continue to change lives now and in the future,” remarked Helena Lee, Assistant Vice President, Corporate Communications, Manulife (International) Limited.

She went on to say: “We pride ourselves on having been officially designated a ‘Caring Company’ title from the Hong Kong Council of Social Service since 2002; it recognizes the caring spirit that comes so naturally to all who work here.”

Manulife has been an active supporter of the Hong Kong Cancer Fund for 16 years and has backed the “Pink Revolution” since 2008. The idea behind it is that wearing something in such a striking colour will be a conversation-starter that will lead people to talk about the disease, and show how determined the campaign’s supporters are to the fight against it.

Founded in 1987, the Hong Kong Cancer Fund is one of Hong Kong’s leading cancer-care organizations. The “Pink Revolution” is its annual breast-cancer awareness and fund-raising campaign to promote the importance of early detection and raise money towards its free breast-cancer support services.
