Interact Club Breast Cancer Walk

By November 8, 2014GIN & Clubs

The Interact Club in CDNIS is a student organised group sponsored by Hong Kong’s Rotary Organisation (https://www.facebook.com/groups/131451460286851/). The club’s mission statement is to tackle local and global issues by participating in monthly service activities. For the month of October, the Interact Club took part in the Pink Walk for Breast Health, an event aimed to raise much needed awareness and funds towards the Hong Kong Breast Cancer Foundation (http://www.hkbcf.org/pinkwalk/eng/). Prior to the event, the Interact Club hosted an advocacy campaign on October 8, aiming to educate students about the purpose and significance of the event through interactive activities. Students were also encouraged to donate a minimum of $200 to raise funds for the organisation. Because of the advocacy campaign, on the day of the walk (Sunday, October 19), dozens of students participated with a clear understanding on how they were making an impact towards their local community. Definitely not a bad way to start a Sunday morning!
