This past week was World Cancer Day. I was lucky and happy to have been able to be a part of it. The activities of the week would always be applauded. Project pinkblue had a commemorative walk,race&cycle,that took place on the 6th of feb 2016. Volunteers streamed out from every part of the city to take part in  this event. Everyone in their pink or blue outfits,sneakers ready looking to create greater awareness for cancer.

The walk,race and cycle had : The Honorable minister of health,The Honorable minister of women affairs,Chidinma(miss kedike),Annie Idibia(TuFace’s wife) and a host of others. It was amazing!
The walk,race &cycle took off fro Sheraton hotel @9am. Before that,there was aerobics and registration for breast,cervical and postrate cancer screening. The walk took us through,Musa Y’aradua centre,up to zone 4 bridge and round back after zone 3,zenith bank and back to sheraton. Witn the dj blasting and everyone having a swell time. We did create the awareness. In front of Sheraton,Idomine noodles was there to feed us. People who had registered earlier for the screening went to the football field and had a free screening.
Then you realize,that it doesn’t matter if its for a day,a week,a month or even if you are a resident in Abuja. You have places to explore,events to attend,activities to participate in. There’s never a dull moment in this city!
