IT was all things pink at the IEE Varsity College last week as students and staff held a Breast Cancer Awareness Day at the Pietermaritzburg campus. They donned pink ribbons and the day was aptly called “50 Shades of Pink”.

CANSA was on campus aiding women with free breast cancer screenings, as well as selling toys, key rings, bangles and a variety of other items. All funds raised went to CANSA and their many avenues of creating awareness and promoting healthy living.

VC Cares, the Varsity College student volunteer body sold pink cupcakes, and conducted a sprayathon on campus. Many staff members and students walked away with bright, pink hair.

Bruce Kenneth from CANSA said: “There can be life after breast cancer. The prerequisite is early detection. Pink is the colour that symbolises breast cancer so it was fitting to have a 50 Shades of Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Day. The response from students and the staff was awesome with 44 ladies undergoing a clinical breast exam.”

Varsity College’s 50 Shades of Pink campaign was a resounding success, raising awareness for the cause and highlighting how important it is to be tested for breast cancer regularly. – Supplied.
