More than 200 people joined the race to mark World Breast Cancer Day, an event organized by the Municipal Institute for Women. The proceeds through registrations will be donated to two civil associations, Grupo Bennu and Corazón de Orquídea (Heart of Orchid), which have shown excellent support for women affected by breast cancer.

The event took place on a sunny morning on Sunday, October 22, which undoubtedly contributed to the success of this recreational event. The race took place on Avenida Francisco Medina Ascencio, covering a distance of five kilometers, from the sports unit Agustín Flores Contreras.

The governor Sara Mosqueda Torres conveyed a message on behalf of Mayor Luis Alberto Michel Rodríguez, highlighting the importance of awareness of breast cancer and the need to carry this message throughout the year. Maricela Joya Camacho emphasized the importance of self-examination as a vital tool in early detection of breast cancer.

Delia Felix Díaz, founder of Grupo Bennu, expressed her gratitude to all participants, including a large group of men. This shows that awareness of breast cancer is a cause that binds people of all ages and genders.

The organizers stressed that with this race they seek to raise awareness about the importance of women carrying out their self-exploration. No prizes were awarded for the first places, as the event was recreational in nature.
