Muhammad Varachia, general manager of Rosebank Mall, says, "We are deeply grateful and profoundly honoured for the opportunity to raise both funds and awareness for breast cancer."
"We want to express our deepest gratitude to each and every person who attended and took part in this extraordinary event. Your presence, enthusiasm and unwavering commitment were the driving forces behind the day's remarkable achievements. Together, we painted Rosebank pink, a vibrant reminder that love and compassion can truly change the world," adds Varachia.
The mall says that the attendees' unwavering support and participation filled the Rosebank streets with an indomitable spirit of camaraderie, love and empathy — the personification of the 'Power of Pink'.
"Rosebank Mall cannot thank each and every participant enough for partnering with us on this remarkable journey towards a brighter future for cancer warriors," the mall adds.
According to the event, the highlight of the day was undoubtedly the heartfelt moment when the initiative handed over a contribution of R50 000 to the CANSA organisation.
"This donation will play a pivotal role in supporting breast cancer awareness and the incredible work that CANSA does. It is through these acts of kindness that we can truly make a difference in the lives of those affected by this disease," the mall says.
The fun run / walk, which started on Bath Avenue and culminated on Cradock Avenue atop the Rosebank Mall rooftop, brought together runners / walkers of all ages and backgrounds. But the event was more than just a race; it was a celebration of life, resilience and togetherness, the mall says.
Ster-Kinekor says that it brought smiles and delight with slushies and popcorn, adding an extra layer of joy to the event.
"We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Boston City Campus for generously sponsoring the medals, making each participant feel like a true champion. In addition, we want to express our sincere appreciation to Woolworths for their generous contribution of 150 two-litre bottles of Coke, which added a refreshing touch to our event and further enhanced the experience for our participants," the mall adds.
Rosebank Mall concludes that, in collaboration with CANSA, it is humbled by the incredible turnout and support from the community.
