That's right folks! It's that time of year again! Sunday 31 Oct, 2010 is the Dragons Abreast Festival and USANA is dragon boating in the name of Breast Cancer! We love being part of this event! It's a great day out at Sydney's Darling Harbour AND it's all done for a good cause!
Why do we take part in Dragons Abreast? Because it's all about "promoting a message of education, hope and awareness of breast cancer."
And Breast cancer is a real issue in Australia and New Zealand (and around the world)! It's something that should be talked about!
Did you know?
Make sure you're on top of breast cancer - read up about it, know the detection methods
- Each year over 2600 New Zealand women and just over 20 men are diagnosed with breast cancer.
- In 2006, 12 614 women and 102 men were diagnosed with breast cancer in Australia with 2643 deaths.
- 1 in 11 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer before the age of 75
We've got a great team racing for Awareness this year! Our Sydney Corporate team supported by 2 Associates, Raman Chen and Alan Todhunter! It's going to be a great day on the water and we can't wait to continue to raise awareness for Breast Cancer!
- Regular self-examination
- Examination by your doctor
- Screening mammograms
The USANA Dragon Boat team will be training on the 10 October, ready for the race on 31 October so if you're in Sydney that day, join us on the Harbour and watch us stroke to the beating of the drum, and raise awareness for breast cancer!
