The Wave 94.5 & 93.7fm Raises Aware­ness of Can­cer in Men

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The Wave Ra­dio Sta­tion (94.5 & 93.7 fm) is con­tin­u­ing its pledge in support of can­cer aware­ness. As the of­fi­cial ra­dio spon­sor of the suc­cess­ful an­nual Yo­plait Walk for Can­cer for the past 3 years, The Wave this year is adding a new el­e­ment, by fo­cus­ing on a spe­cific type of can­cer: can­cer in men.

Oc­to­ber is rec­og­nized world­wide as Breast Can­cer Aware­ness month, and to help raise aware­ness of the deadly dis­ease in men, the ra­dio sta­tion has planned an event for the first time ever in St. Lu­cia, dubbed Men In Heels (Dash for Cash). The event will take the form of an ‘ob­sta­cle course race’. Par­tic­i­pat­ing men will race for the cash at the fin­ish line by com­plet­ing the en­tire ob­sta­cle course in a pair of heels (min­i­mum of 3 inches).

The event is en­dorsed by the Saint Lu­cia Can­cer So­ci­ety and is sched­uled to take place on Sun­day 2nd Novem­ber 2014 at the Pi­geon Is­land Cause­way, right after the Yo­plait Walk for Can­cer. Reg­is­tra­tion for the event is $10 and can be done at The Wave of­fice in Rod­ney Bay and Su­per J IGA Su­per­mar­kets. Women who are in­ter­ested in donat­ing a pair of heels for the cause can do so by drop­ping them off at Shoe Re­hab at The JQ Rod­ney Bay Mall.

Part pro­ceeds of the event go to the Saint Lu­cia Can­cer So­ci­ety. The Wave 94.5 & 93.7 fm would like to sin­cerely thank its cor­po­rate spon­sors CFL and Su­per J Su­per­mar­ket, St Lu­cia Bandag, Shoe Re­hab, GTM, Choice TV and Dig­i­cel. An ap­peal is made to all cor­po­rate en­ti­ties to make a do­na­tion to the SLCS through this event.
