Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation funded organization CancerCare Manitoba is looking to recruit student volunteers to provide breast health presentations to high school students in Manitoba.
CancerCare Manitoba’s innovative youth breast health awareness program Be PINK is an educational resource for teachers that addresses breast health and risk reduction for breast cancer. The information, which can be used in a classroom setting, guides teens and young adults to make healthy lifestyle choices which help to reduce the risk of breast cancer. The Be PINK video features Bif Naked, a Canadian recording artist and breast cancer survivor, who discusses the importance of lifestyle choices in potentially developing the disease.
Be PINK has been a huge success in Manitoba, reaching many high schools across the province. This year, Be PINK is looking to expand their program even more by recruiting student breast health facilitators who will deliver breast health presentations and engage high school students in Be PINK activities to help create an atmosphere of openness, respect and enthusiasm.
If you are a 18 years of age or older, a resident of Manitoba, currently attending a post-secondary education program (second year or later) and are interested in helping to create a future without breast cancer please contact:
