Wal­kers and run­ners who took part in the an­nu­al S­ha­des of Pink bre­ast can­cer walk on T­hurs­day 26 Oc­to­ber bra­ved free­zing we­at­her to de­mon­stra­te that their he­arts be­at warm­ly for all can­cer suf­fe­rers and sur­vi­vors.

Mo­re than 600 pe­op­le sho­wed up for the fun an­nu­al e­vent. Ma­yor Mel­vin Naik was the­re to wel­co­me the cro­wd. He said that his fa­mi­ly had al­so had a brush with can­cer, but emp­ha­ti­cal­ly con­clu­ded with the words, “Can­cer can be be­a­ten.”

An­gie Co­le­man pre­sen­ted a Zum­ba ses­si­on to help warm up e­ver­yo­ne’s muscles be­fo­re the ma­yor cut the rib­bon to set off the walk.

It was the thi­rd con­se­cu­ti­ve y­e­ar that the Can­cer As­so­ci­a­ti­on (Can­sa) held the e­vent at Blue Moun­tain E­sta­te.

E­ver­yo­ne had a lot of fun com­ple­ting the rou­te al­ong the sa­fe streets with their fa­bu­lous moun­tain views.
