Strip’s joined a pink fight against breast cancer

In Strip’s and LUMENIA we marked the Pink October 2017 with sponsorship of Run and Walk for Hope event, organized by Protective Work Center, Zagorje ob Savi and Europa Donna, Slovenian breast cancer association.  

In the green Europark Zagorje, a colorful crowd of people from different generations gathered and walked or run around the park. The purpose of the event was to raise awareness about the importance of a healthy lifestyle and the importance of self-examination of breast. Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women. In Slovenia, almost 1,300 women and about 10 males fall ill each year for breast cancer. However, as breast cancer is highly curable, if detected early enough, we decided to actively warn about the importance of a healthy lifestyle and the early detection of this disease. The representatives of Europa Donne were invited to Strip’s premises to meet with employees on November 21, 2017, sharing their experience and knowledge.  We are looking forward to seizing this opportunity to stop and remember how vulnerable we are.
