GlobalCapital sponsors Pink October 2016
GlobalCapital is the proud main sponsor of Malta’s largest Pink October campaign ever. The main aim of #PinkOctoberMalta is to raise funds and awareness about breast cancer prevention, research and for the purchasing of equipment to improve the quality of life for cancer patients.
This is the first time that Pink October Malta is receiving a financial boost from a corporate sponsor since inception in 2014.
The collaboration between GlobalCapital and Pink October Malta coincides with the launching of Cancer Care – a new insurance product by GlobalCapital offering up to €100,000 in financial support for policyholders who encounter cancer during the term of their policy.
Unlike other life insurance products available in the market, Cancer Care provides peace of mind that if and when a cancer is diagnosed, the patient will have one less burden to worry about – financial independence will be supported through the Cancer Care policy.
Moreover, children of policy holders are included in the policy cover at no additional cost and should a cancer diagnosis emerge once again after a five-year cancer free period, the financial support up to €100,000 will be provided once again.
Reuben Zammit, Chief Executive Officer at GlobalCapital, said: “Our business at GlobalCapital is derived from protecting life and health. Insurance products provide a shoulder and peace of mind when unpleasant circumstances in our lives unfold unexpectedly. However, the best protection always stems from leading healthy lifestyles and awareness; early diagnosis increases survival chances. This is the main reason why GlobalCapital has joined forces with Pink October Malta – to raise as much awareness as possible on breast cancer and the available methods to fight it.
“The features of our Cancer Care policy are unique and exclusively designed to help individuals who encounter cancer at some point in their lifetime. Two out of every five persons are at risk of encountering cancer at some point in their lives,” Mr Zammit explained.
The Pink October 2016 campaign aims to raise €90,000 from corporate sponsors, private donations and from various activities which will be held throughout October. The funds will be used to purchase a Faxitron Biovision machine to further enhance diagnostic precision and effectiveness during breast and other cancer related surgery.
Pink October 2016 brings together a number of non-profit and commercial entities under an umbrella movement united by a shared vision to step up the fight against breast cancer, including The Marigold Foundation, NGOs Europa Donna Malta and Action for Breast Cancer, JPA, the majority of Malta’s media houses and numerous commercial partners.
Several events will be held throughout October to raise funds and awareness. More information and registration at www.pinkoctober.support
