Bigger Obstacle Course For November 1 Event.
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 for Cancer for the past four years, The Wave again this year is focusing 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 last year launched an event for the first time ever in St. Lucia, dubbed Men in Heels (Dash for Cash). The event took the form of an ‘obstacle course race’. Participating men raced for the cash at the finish line, by completing the entire obstacle course in a pair of heels. In the end Julian Toussaint emerged victorious and won EC $1000, a trophy and other prizes.
Returning in 2015 with a bigger obstacle course, Men in Heels is scheduled to take place on Sunday November 1 at the Pigeon Island Causeway, right after the Yoplait Walk for Cancer. Registration for the event is $10 and can be done at the Waves office in Rodney Bay and Super J IGA Supermarkets. Women can donate a pair of heels for the cause, by dropping them off at Shoe Rehab at the JQ Rodney Bay Mall.
Men in Heels is endorsed by the Saint Lucia Cancer Society (SLCS). Part proceeds of the event will go to the Society. An appeal is made to all corporate entities to make a donation to the SLCS through this event. For further information please contact The Wave’s head office at 451-6400.
