HALIFAX, Jan. 16 /CNW/ - The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation is pleased to commend the 'Bust a Move' for Breast Health event to be held on January 30, 2010 at the Halifax Metro Centre. Hundreds of Canadians are expected to unite for this unique event to raise funds and awareness for the breast cancer cause, hosted by the QEII and IWK Foundations.
Cheryl Hodder, Chair, National Board of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and Partner, McInnes Cooper, one of the event Sponsors, stated:
"Breast cancer is a disease that affects so many Atlantic Canadians every day. Raising awareness, promoting education about the disease, and investing in crucial medical resources, are vital to truly make a difference in the lives of those affected by breast cancer. With the continued contribution of Atlantic Canadians, we can save lives. It is with that understanding that I would like to congratulate the 'Bust a Move' event on bringing the Atlantic community together to raise funds, while having fun, in support of the breast cancer cause."
