Breast Cancer Awareness Seminar For Skycity Staff

26 October 2004

Breast Cancer Awareness Seminar For Skycity Staff

As an extension of its ongoing support for the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation, SKYCITY Hamilton will host a breast cancer awareness seminar for staff, as part of October’s annual breast cancer awareness month.

The New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation’s Educator, Amanda Gray, will be facilitating the informative seminar on Wednesday evening 27 October 2004 (tomorrow) in the SKYCITY Hamilton boardroom. The seminar will start at 6pm and will run for approximately one hour, excluding question time.

”The whole idea of facilitating this interactive seminar is to promote breast cancer awareness and the fact that early detection saves lives,” says Ms Gray.

“We discuss myths, fears and learn to understand the meaning of breast cancer. We want people to take more responsibility with breast health awareness and help those who experience issues get on with their lives.”

The seminar will include information relevant to breast cancer awareness and will focus on enforcing the message that ‘early detection is the best prevention’.

SKYCITY acknowledges that breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer related deaths for women in New Zealand and is encouraging its staff to attend the seminar. Last year, SKYCITY Auckland held a similar seminar for staff which was well attended.

For the past two years, SKYCITY Hamilton has joined the global illumination campaign along with monuments in over 40 countries worldwide to actively promote breast health awareness by lighting up in the charity’s official colour - pink. Recently, SKYCITY Hamilton and the Riverside Entertainment Centre were glowing in pink light (from 01 to 14 October 2004) to promote breast cancer awareness to the Hamilton community.

SKYCITY is an ongoing supporter and sponsor of the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation and has proudly supported the Foundation in its endeavours since 2000. Once again, SKYCITY Auckland’s Sky Tower joined the global illumination campaign being the first city icon lit pink from 01 October to 14 October 2004.

All SKYCITY Entertainment Group properties throughout New Zealand (in Queenstown, Hamilton and Auckland) supported the 2004 campaign with breast health awareness brochures mailed out to all female staff. Staff at all properties continue to wear and sell the charity’s official pink ribbons to help raise money for the cause throughout October.
