On Saturday, 26 October 2019, Emerald Resort & Casino will once again be hosting the annual CANSA Rainbow Breast Walk in order to honour breast cancer survivors and raise the awareness of this disease.
According to statistics from the National Cancer Registry (NCR) 2014, the top five cancers affecting women in SA include: breast, cervical, colorectal, uterine and lung cancer. Both breast and cervical cancer have been identified as a national priority with increasing incidences occurring.
“Approximately 19.4 million women aged 15 years and older are at risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer,” says Tanuja Gangabishun, Marketing Executive at Emerald Resort & Casino. “These are staggering numbers and awareness needs to be increased dramatically!”
The CANSA Breast Walk is a 5km walk and all are invited. Traditionally, everyone is asked to show their support by wearing pink on the day. Emerald Resort & Casino prides itself on being the entertainment destination for the entire family, and as such the event is even extended to our four-legged, furry friends who are welcome to join their owners for this 5km walk.

“We are so pleased to have had the opportunity to once again make a difference and increase the awareness of this disease. I encourage everyone to contribute to The Cancer Association of South Africa in their personal capacity on their website*,” says Tanuja.
