Men in Heels to Raise Aware­ness of Can­cer in Men

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Oc­to­ber is rec­og­nized world­wide as Breast Can­cer Aware­ness Month and The Wave Ra­dio Sta­tion (94.5 & 93.7FM) is con­tin­u­ing its pledge in sup­port of Can­cer aware­ness. As the of­fi­cial ra­dio spon­sor of the suc­cess­ful an­nual Yo­plait Walk Against Can­cer since 2008, The Wave is again, this year, fo­cussing on a spe­cific type of can­cer, a less talked about con­di­tion: can­cer in men.

To help raise aware­ness of the deadly disease in men, The Wave, in 2014, launched an event for the first time ever in Saint Lu­cia, dubbed Men in Heels (Dash for Cash). The event takes the form of an ‘ob­sta­cle course' where par­tic­i­pat­ing men race to the fin­ish line by com­plet­ing the en­tire ob­sta­cle course which re­quires stamina, strength, en­durance and the abil­ity to do it all with a pair of heels strapped on.

Re­turn­ing in 2017 with a big­ger ob­sta­cle course, Men in Heels is sched­uled to take place on Sun­day Novem­ber 5 at the Pi­geon Is­land Cause­way, right af­ter the Yo­plait Walk Against Can­cer. Reg­is­tra­tion for the event is $10 and can be done at The Wave of­fice in Rod­ney Bay and Shoe Re­hab lo­ca­tions. The win­ner of Men in Heels 2017 will win $1,000 cash and other great prizes.

Women can do­nate a pair of heels for the cause at Shoe Re­hab (JQ Rod­ney Bay Mall and Gable­woods Mall).

Part pro­ceeds of the event will go to Faces of Can­cer Saint Lu­cia. An ap­peal is made to all cor­po­rate en­ti­ties to make a do­na­tion through this event.
