Breast Cancer Awareness Walkathon 2009

October marks the international “Breast Cancer Awareness Month”; the annual “Breast Cancer Awareness Walkathon 2009” was held on 18th October. This year sees more enthusiastic participation; nearly 800 supporters joined the event, raising a total of HKD 1.6 million.


To add fun to this year’s event, we presented three new awards: “Best Dress Pink Award” (individual or group with the most impressive “pink” look); “Top Fund Raiser Award” and “Highest Participation Rate Award”. The Peak turned “pink” on that day; everyone was enthusiastic to walk against breast cancer.


Winners' list:
Best Dress Pink Award – Adele & Michael Pieper
Top Fund Raiser Award – Ms. Chan Yiu Yi
Highest Participation Rate Award – Estee Lauder Group (HK) Ltd
