In global solidarity, Fifth Chukker, in partnership with MTN Communications, has brought together women, men and families to enhance awareness and raise funds and inspire meaningful action in the fight against breast cancer which remains the second biggest killer of Nigerian women after maternal mortality.
Our ‘Pink Hope’ campaign aims to support all platforms that advance easier and faster screening of women and raise awareness levels about breast cancer. Since 2011 we have rolled out a number of activities in the Breast Cancer Awareness month of October, including International Polo championships, Fashion shows, Bicycle polo exhibition matches, lectures and clinical screenings for women.
The vision of this campaign is to create a robust platform that will spark significant national significant awareness about the disease. Fifth Chukker also engages with professionals in the field including MEDICAID and Dr Femi Olaleye to educate women and their families.
