More than 100 Pink Lady silhouettes will be on display in Sturt Park tomorrow as a show of support for women and families affected by breast cancer.
The display will be on after the Breast Cancer Support Group’s Fun Run in the morning.
Community Liaison officer with Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA), Kerri Baker, said the silhouettes will be placed around the park and near the rotunda.
“This is the first time we have done this as a mini-field event,” Ms Baker said.
“We are doing it to raise awareness and recognise the women who have died from breast cancer or survived it.”
BCNA’s “Mini-Field of Women” events provide an opportunity for the public to pay tribute to all those affected by breast cancer.
Mrs Baker said locals did not have to buy any of the merchandise on offer; they could come and have a look or even enter the Fun Run.
People can register at 7.30am for the run that starts at 8. There will be pink pancakes cooked and served as well.
Entry costs $5 and you can do a one, three of five kilometre walk or run.
There are prizes for the winners, best pink costume and youngest and oldest competitors.
The Breast Cancer Support Group said although breast cancer care and knowledge had come a long way, there were still women being diagnosed every day who need to be provided with help and support.
