Pink Train Fundraising Marathon
A message from Pink Train Foundation:
Dear BritCham Members and Friends,
Having survived the Covid-19 pandemic, charities and NGO’s are now experiencing the negative effects of the war in Ukraine, as many funds are, understandably, being channelled to fight this cause. However, the number of women diagnosed with breast cancer in Latvia remains the same – over 1000 new cases every year. Over the last 8 years the Pink Train Foundation has helped more than 1000 women diagnosed, covering the costs of psychological support following diagnosis and physiotherapy after surgery, and the number of women helped remains steady every year.
Following a three year break we are therefore delighted to announce that this year we are organising the Pink Train May Marathon again and invite you to take part and help us raise funds for our cause.
How can you participate?
1. During the month of May run, walk, cycle, ride, roller-blade or use whatever other means to “do” 42k. Keep a tally of your achievements and invite your friends, family, colleagues and others to support you by donating to the Pink Train Foundation. Donations can be made via our fund-raising link or directly to our bank account or paypal account. All donations made in May will be counted towards our goal of raising a minimum of EUR 4200. (As a guide, we need an average of EUR 3000 a month to cover the costs of counselling and physiotherapy for breast cancer patients).
We would love it if you posted pictures of your efforts on your social media with one or more of the following hashtags #pinktrainmarathon2023 #rozāvilcienamaratons2023 #pinktrain42k (optional, of course).
Prizes will be awarded at the end of the challenge to the individual and group (family, friends, company or organisation) raising the highest amount, as well as those considered to be the most creative. The pinker, the better, of course!
