This October, work out, shop comfy loungewear, and enjoy high tea for a good cause. By SAMANTHA FRANCIS.

In honour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October, brands in Singapore have risen to the occasion to raise awareness for early screening and detection, as well as pledge funds for research and treatment. With about one in eight diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, it’s the most common form of cancer for women locally.

Whether you’re a supporter, a survivor or someone hoping to understand more about this disease, here are some initiatives worth checking out.

Work out for a cause

WeBarre and Freedom Yoga are joining forces to offer both yoga and barre classes, where proceeds will be donated to the Breast Cancer Foundation. WeBarre is offering a virtual class at S$30 and an in-person class at S$50, while participants at Freedom Yoga can choose between an in-person class or two virtual classes for S$50. After sweating it out for a good cause, you’ll leave with a Pink Beauty Pack featuring an Artclaytion x ELC tote bag, as well as a beauty kit from The Estée Lauder Companies worth S$110.

Bras for breast cancer survivors

Homegrown lingerie brand Perk by Kate has launched a stylish six-piece collection for those undergoing breast cancer recovery, designed with features to suit their needs. Founder Kate Low worked closely with breast reconstruction surgeon Dr. Chia Hui Ling from SW1 Plastic Surgery Clinic to create these bras, which come in buttery soft and breathable fabric, as well as thick and adjustable straps for high support and a seamless fit. Most importantly, she also sought the feedback of customers who are breast cancer survivors.

Show solidarity with a run 

Participate in the first-ever Breast Cancer Campaign Virtual Run by clocking 75-kilometres at your own pace. The S$25 registration package consists of a complimentary Pink Ribbon T-shirt, while the S50 package comes with beauty products from The Estée Lauder Companies worth S$80. Proceeds from the registration fees will go to the Breast Cancer Foundation benefitting their outreach programmes.

Available in a distinct shade of pink called “pressed rose”, the sleepwear set will be available from October onwards. For every set purchased, customers will receive a complimentary Pink Ribbon pin. $5 from each purchase will be donated to the Breast Cancer Foundation.

Enjoy a pink afternoon tea

Throughout October, Goodwood Park Hotel will be offering a two-tier Rose Medley high tea set for takeaway, featuring petite sweet and savoury treats.  Those dining in can treat themselves to an English afternoon tea at L’Espresso, with snacks and desserts dressed in pink. A S$2 nett donation will be made for each Rosey Medley set sold in October 2021. Meanwhile, a minimum of S$5 nett donation will entitle those dining in, to a Breast Cancer Foundation Pink Ribbon pin.
