"Such events help us in reaching our goal of raising female sports activities from 30 to 40 percent; it really symbolizes Vision 2030 and how we are trying to be active and reach our targets".

The money raised from the walks will go toward finding a cure for breast cancer.

More than 60,000 people walked to raise more than $650,000 for the American Cancer Society's efforts to research the disease and educate the public on detection.

Earlier this month Morrison - now 45 years old and a mother of three - was urging Kiwi women, especially Māori, to enrol for free breast screening this October after having her first mammogram.

The event took place at the Jeddah United club in Shatea district from 5p.m.to 10p.m. and aims to support breast cancer awareness among Jeddah women under the slogan "We are here to live and be loved".

"The whole pink-ribbon, breast cancer awareness campaign is focused on getting your mammograms and doing self exams, it says if you are diagnosed you will get chemotherapy, radiation, surgery and then you're better, and we are going to celebrate and run in pink tutus", Rhonda Brewer of MI told Salon.

Minaj said in the clip, "I was minding my business, let's make our music and just be happy". Cause you're out here f*cking up your legacy looking like a f*cking hater".

The annual American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk starts at 2 p.m. on Sunday at Chattanooga State, 4501 Amnicola Highway.

Yet that kind of language implies that when a patient is diagnosed, her (or his) happiness hinges on the success of treatment. "Something we can give back to our community".

Unlike many women struggling with breast cancer, Moss was fortunate to have the insurance and means to afford treatment. Last year prostate cancer was a focus, this year the gymnasium was decorated in teal for cervical cancer.

Shonda Davis, the mistress of ceremonies, won her fight against breast cancer. This year Avon joined us as the first ever National Presenting Sponsor.

"Yes, cancer is a survivable disease in many, many cases". We should celebrate life every day.
