What an amazing start to Pink October month with a walk that had been organised by the Association (Kanser Hastalarina Yardım Derneği) to launch the activities for Pink October to raise awareness for Breast Cancer.
Over two hundred walkers turned out to walk the 2.8km route around the castle walls, harbour, breakwater and up to the Dome Hotel and back.
Girne was awash with Pink and even the Girne Municipality Mayor Nidai Güngördü and Deputy Hasan Taçoy took part. The sponsors for this event were Near East University who sponsored the Pink T-shirts and provided an ambulance for the event in case of an emergency. Tulips cancer support association would like to thank them and also the Police department and Girne Municipality workers for helping on the day.
Tulips also says thank you to the Near East students and professors who attended and also the Lord’s Palace staff who joined in and of course all the supporters who turned out in their pink!
A fantastic 3,420.75 TL was raised to kick off Pink October.
