Karachi: Sports in Pakistan, a leading sports organization, is proud to announce its flagship event, Pinktober, in support of the battle against cancer. This remarkable initiative aims to raise funds for the renowned Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital, serving as a beacon of hope for those affected by cancer throughout Pakistan.
Cancer knows no boundaries and affects individuals from all walks of life. In recognition of this universal challenge, Sports in Pakistan has taken up the mantle by organizing the Pinktober event. Through this event, we aim to bring together individuals, communities, and sports enthusiasts alike, fostering unity and contributing towards this worthy cause.
One of the highlight activities of the Pinktober event is the Annual Pinktober 20K Ride 10K Run and 5K Walk, which has been successfully organized for the past few years. This event not only promotes physical fitness and well-being but also serves as a platform to raise awareness and funds for cancer research and treatment.
Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Center is the primary beneficiary of the proceeds from our Pinktober events. With the collective efforts of participants and supporters, our goal this year is to raise 15 million Rupees. These funds will be dedicated to the construction of a mammography Room at the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital, enabling enhanced diagnostic capabilities, and providing vital support to breast cancer patients.
Shoaib Nizami, CEO of Sports in Pakistan, expressed his enthusiasm for the Pinktober event, stating, “We are honored to organize Pinktober and contribute to the fight against cancer. This event unites people from all walks of life, transcending borders, and boundaries. I urge everyone to join us in this noble pursuit, as together we can make a significant impact and bring hope to those battling cancer.”
Sports in Pakistan invites all members of the media to attend and cover the Pinktober event. Your support in spreading awareness and highlighting the importance of early detection and treatment in the fight against cancer is invaluable.
