Be My Reason Shower Run 2016 |9th Oct 2016, The Arc|
Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!
I would like to invite you to join a run with cause. It is the Shokubutsu BE MY REASON Shower Run 2016 it is actually the first ever shower themed run in Malaysia. This run encourages people to run with their partners to symbolise their reason to staying healthy for their loves ones and be aware of the consequences breast cancer can do.
Wonder why is it a Shower Run? Do you shower while you run? hahaha no lah.. it is actually a Breast Cancer Awareness campaign. So, how does a shower can prevent cancer? A simple act of self checking few mins in the shower could be an early detection for a breast cancer and this could save life. I mean, as woman my self, I find that this initiative is noble. To remind ladies the importance of spending couple of minutes out of 720 minutes we have daily.
The roadshow which Shokubutsu and the National Cancer Society of Malaysia (NCSM) held last year to demonstrate breast self-check yielded worrisome results. Many were unsure of how to conduct breast self-check, and even more were not committed to breast self-check in the convenience of their home! Adding to the shock was that such random checks at roadshows detected six ladies to have suspicious lumps in their breast, showing how prevalence the breast cancer is.
By having this event, hopefully it will give more insight and awareness and can pontentially save life along the way. To be completely honest, even myself did not know to perform a self-check up. It is good to find out how. Just sharing it below incase you want to find out too :-
So, if you are free on this coming 9th Oct 2016 (Sunday). The run will start at 7am and the venue will be at The Arc, Bandar Rimbayu, Kota Kemuning, Shah Alam. The registration is Rm50 per person and RM90 for 2 person. You can actually register online at http://pacerssport.my/shokubutsubemyreason.

Do check out the video to find out more about the Shokobutsu “Be My Reason” Shower Run 2016. This time around Beto Kusyairi and his wife will be joining the run as they are a good example of among Malaysians on how women can be encouraged by their partners, spouses, family and friends to conduct breast self-checks. When Tisha detected a lump on her breast while doing breast self-checks, she braced herself for a transitional period of her life, involving therapies and maybe even surgery. She credits Beto Kusyairi as her rock and pillar of support throughout the anxious period. The lump has since been discovered to be benign but it was an experience that drove them to firmly believe in the need for more people to be committed to do breast self-check.
