Prof John Marshall in Breast Cancer Campaign Wear It Pink video

 

Breast Cancer Campaign visited us last month to speak to our Professor John Marshall for the October awareness campaign: Wear It Pink.

The Wear it Pink website acts as a free resource for schools to use in their fundraising/awareness activities: http://www.wearitpink.org/atschool

You can view the full video, filmed here at BCI, on YouTube:

 Breast Cancer Campaign say:

Play this video in assembly or in class to raise students’ awareness of Breast Cancer Campaign’s scientific research. A great way to kick off a discussion or inspire your students to fundraise for wear it pink.

Every year, wear it pink raises over £2 million during Breast Cancer Awareness Month to fund our ground-breaking research. Find out how your school can sign up and get involved here http://bit.ly/WkmJbO.
