Estee Lauder Pink Charity Ride 2015
I was looking forward to this and it was awesome! It was so satisfying completing a 12km bike ride, especially since it was for a good cause. As part of Estee Lauder Companies' 2015 Breast Cancer Awareness (BCA) Campaign, it organised various outreach efforts to raise awareness about breast cancer in
raised funds for charitable beneficiaries. Last year, a total of RM600,000 was
raised to support Cancer Research Malaysia (formerly known as The Cancer Research
Initiatives Foundation, CARIF), The National Cancer Society Malaysia, The
College of Radiology Malaysia and The Breast Cancer Welfare association so they
can further strengthen efforts on medical research, education, offer of free
mammograms and support for survivors. Malaysia
This year, expanding on the platform "Let's Defeat Breast Cancer. We're stronger together," Estee Lauder Malaysia embraces the theme 'Every Action Counts' throughout the region and raising funds for the charitable bodies. This is inspired by the belief that only with greater awareness on breast cancer, more people will be able to take the right action and make the next step to lend a helping hand.
It was a sea of pink as the Pink Charity Ride flagged off at 6.45 on a Saturday morning at Mid Valley Megamall after a warm up session with Fitness First. The first 6km was quite a breeze as I headed to the half way mark at Dataran Merdeka. The entire group stopped for a breather and basically to get everyone back together before heading for the 2nd leg. Photo op was a must and to just remind myself I'm doing good so far. The next 6km was quite a challenge because Saturday morning traffic had started to build up. Apart from the rogue motorists that were ridiculously uncooperative, the marshalls and traffic police did a great job at keeping the cyclists safe and on the right track. I reached the finish line at about 8am. It was a fantastic feeling!

Not only did all participants get to wear a really cool pink/black Pink Charity Ride Brooks t-shirt, they also went home with goody bags and some lucky ones got their hands on those lucky draw prizes. Tickets were sold at RM80 and proceeds will be donated to the beneficiaries. Photos below were from after the ride.
