A special Be My Reason Shower Run is being organised by Shokubutsu to continue raising awareness on breast self-check during shower.
The Be My Reason Shower Run is set to be a one-of- a-kind run in Malaysia where participants are encouraged to run together with a partner who symbolises their reason for committing to breast self-check during shower.
Come the month of October, we will once again be inundated with breast cancer awareness campaigns. But do we really pay attention to it? What would you do if your loved ones or anyone that you know is battling breast cancer? Or what have you done for yourself to increase your chance of survival should the unimaginable happens?
The roadshow which Shokubutsu and the National Cancer Society of Malaysia (NCSM) held last year to demonstrate breast self-check yielded worrisome results. Many were unsure of how to conduct breast self-check, and even more were not committed to breast self-check in the convenience of their home! Adding to the shock was that such random checks at roadshows detected six ladies to have suspicious lumps in their breast, showing how prevalence the breast cancer is.
Such unsettling circumstances have driven Shokubutsu, the leading shower foam brand in Malaysia to continue with its Pink Ribbon Campaign with the same passion of encouraging women to make a difference for themselves and loved ones by conducting breast self-checks during showers regularly. Once again, fully supported by the National Cancer Society of Malaysia (NCSM), this year’s campaign is set to be louder and bolder.
To extend the message of breast self-check during showers further, Shokubutsu is organising a Be My Reason Shower Run, the first ever run event with a shower theme in Malaysia.
Scheduled to be held in October, in conjunction of breast cancer awareness month, this one-of-a- kind-run event will be promoting the awareness and spreading the message of support and togetherness for other people. Hence, the Be My Reason Shower Run participants are encouraged to run with their partners who symbolise their reason for committing to breast self-check.

Breast cancer survivors will also be participating in the Be My Reason Shower Run and the rest of participants will have the chance to hear their experiences on how they won their combat against breast cancer with help and supports from their loved ones.
