Charity race raises breast cancer awaamazon wearable technologyrenessCountry Music Festival One part grimy dive bar and one part hip live music venue, Off Broadway walks a thin line. The St. Louis venue isn"t so ghetto and grungy that it scares off well known out-of-town groups, and it"s not so pristine and sterile that it seems awkward to watch a local garage band play there on a Wednesday. For those who live in or near St. Louis and have developed a taste for punk, indie rock and Stag, Off Broadway may be the best music venue around. Movement is essential to optimal health. I like to say, "Motion is Life". It"s not something you do only when you have time, or when you need to lose some weight, or because your cardiologist told you to. It"s part of every single day. Or, it should be.
The 2019 More Than Aware fun run took place at Century Park in Shanghai"s Pudong New Area on Saturday, drawing more than 3,000 participants of all ages from around the world, including 550 survivors of breast cancer.
The event, which was in its seventh edition, featured a 5-kilometer runand a 2-kilometer walk events.
"It is great to see so many people gather here to support those who have suffered and survived breast cancer," said a participant from UK who prefers to know only by her first name Vanessa.
As a second-time participants, she said, "I feel empathetic for this special community because my father died of lung cancer. I am deeply impressed by their courage and spirit."
Xu Qiong, a 63-year-old breast cancer survivor from the Shanghai Cancer Recovery Club who has participated for six consecutive years, expressed her gratitude toward the organizers, saying that the event has created an empowering atmosphere that is necessary to encourage those who have just recovered from cancer.
A total of 75 volunteers from 14 different countries took part in the event to provide services for the participants.
"We came here to empower women to be more proactive about their health," said a Japanese participant called Mika, who has been a race volunteer for six years since her recovery from breast cancer.
"We were depressed when we got cancer, but we came together and supported each other in the community. It helped with the recovery," she added.
Founded in 2011 by Suzanne Calton, More Than Aware helps to raise people"s awareness of breast cancer and the importance of a healthy life. The funds raised during the event will be donated to the Shanghai Cancer Recovery Club.
