Visakhapatnam hosts Pinkathon for breast cancer awareness
Visakhapatnam, Nov 29 (ANI): Over a thousand women painted Visakhapatnam ‘pink’ as they took part in the Pink Marathon to raise awareness about breast cancer on Sunday. The marathon, also aimed at encouraging women’s health and fitness, saw women run in three categories – 3 kilometers, 5 kilometers and 10 kilometers, apart from the half marathon. The marathon was flagged off by Pinkathon brand ambassador and former top model, Milind Soman. Soman, known to be a fitness freak, lauded the women’s enthusiasm. According to a study, The Global Burden of Cancer 2013, published earlier this year, breast cancer has overtaken cervical cancer as the biggest killer of women in India.
