North Burnaby Dental Groups Dentists and Staff are participating in National Denim Day on May 13, 2014.
About National Denim Day
In May 1997, the CURE Foundation inaugurated NATIONAL DENIM DAY, its main fundraiser. This event is held annually on the Tuesday following Mother’s Day. Businesses, organizations and institutions across Canada are encouraged to allow employees, members and/or students to wear denim and receive CURE’s ‘pink flower’ ribbon in exchange for a suggested $5 donation. The Foundation also welcomes matching donations from corporations who wish to support their employees’ contributions to the fight against breast cancer.
CURE will provide a free ‘Dress for CURE’ kit, which will include posters and enrolment materials to ensure easy implementation of this event.
According to the Canadian Cancer Society, an estimated 23, 800 new cases of breast cancer were diagnosed in women, 200 new cases in men, and 5, 000 persons died of this disease in 2013.
