Spain marks International Breast Cancer Day
20 October 2019 @ 22:47

WHEREVER you are in the world, you will probably have seen pink loops somewhere in the run-up to this weekend, and may have watched a sponsored run cut through your town with everyone dressed in pink – yesterday (Saturday) was International Breast Cancer Day and, in Spain, it had made headline news on almost every level.

Locally, because of fun runs and other activities to raise money for breast cancer care and research, and nationally, with everyone from sports teams to shopkeepers wearing pink.

Real Madrid Basket, defending champions of the Endesa League, played Galicia-based team Obradoiro yesterday in the fifth day of the ACB – and Obradoiro wore pink versions of their uniforms for the game, before signing them and putting them up for auction with all proceeds going to the Association Against Metastatic Breast Cancer.
