KUALA LUMPUR: A hundred big bikers took part in the Pink Ribbon Charity Ride from here to Ipoh recently to promote awareness of breast cancer.
The bikers, including some Singaporeans, gathered at Ancasa Hotel and Spa for breakfast before setting off.
They were flagged off by Pink Ribbon Wellness Foundation patron Puan Sri Maniseh Adam.
Also present were foundation chairman Dr M. Devanand and UDA property management senior vice-president Syed Ahmad Nazri Syed Kamaruzaman.
Upon their arrival at a shopping centre in Ipoh, the bikers and foundation volunteers distributed breast cancer booklets to the public.
In the afternoon, the group rode back to Ancasa Hotel and Spa for high tea.
Maniseh said the charity ride was held to spread the awareness about the most common cancer among women worldwide.
"It is also to help our foundation to raise funds for our Mind/Body Wellness Fund," she said.
Maniseh said the money collected would also be used to subsidise breast cancer survivors' participation in complementary and alternative health workshops and therapy sessions.
