SHOOT4PINK is a national fun-draising campaign brought to you by the team at the Pink Ribbon Foundation (Reg. Charity No. 1080839).
It has been proven that a healthy diet and exercise can reduce the onset of breast cancer by up to a third and for this reason the Pink Ribbon Foundation launched SHOOT4PINK - a fun way for people to raise money to fight breast cancer at any time of the year, by taking part in any sport that uses a ball.
We want to keep women fit and healthy and increase breast awareness. A good way to do this is to encourage early ‘good’ habits. These can be started at Primary School by encouraging a healthy diet, positive nutritional information and active play via sport. Throughout Secondary School and College/ University, the aim is to ensure that young girls continue to play sport and adopt a healthy lifestyle in order to encourage healthy habits into adulthood which will help to reduce the risk of future breast cancer.
SHOOT4PINK events, whilst being FUN, will also remind people to stay active and will promote the message that a healthy lifestyle reduces the risk of cancer to both men and women.
SHOOT4PINK was launched with celebrity friends: these Ambassadors know the importance of promoting exercise and are passionate about supporting the Pink Ribbon Foundation and raising money and awareness to fight breast cancer in the UK.
And now we need YOUR help – we want individuals, teams, schools, colleges and businesses up and down the country to take action and sign up to host your very own SHOOT4PINK sporting activity – any team or individual sport with a ball can be played, by anyone of any age or ability – the fun is in the taking part! Think netball, basketball, tennis, golf, bowling, football, polo ……. the list is endless and we want women and men, young and old, to sign up and play in PINK.
