KAMLOOPS - The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, BC/Yukon Region, is excited to launch the third annual Don’t Forget to Check on Tour, formerly known as Campus Campaign, with the support of RBC Foundation. This program focuses on post-secondary campuses throughout British Columbia to both initiate and continue the conversation about breast cancer by offering free breast health information and fun activities. The campaign also encourages women and men to check their breasts, to know what’s normal for them and to discuss any unusual changes with a health care professional.

Throughout our visits throughout the province, which are open to all people in the campus community, our volunteers will share insight about breast health and how young women and men can reduce their risk of breast cancer. Research has shown that 30 minutes of physical activity can improve fitness, lower stress levels and increase feelings of relaxation and well-being, therefore reducing the risk of breast cancer. Related benefits include lowering blood pressure and heart rate, improving digestion and boosting immune system as well as easing symptoms of conditions such as anxiety, depression and fatigue.

What: Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation Don’t Forget to Check on Tour
When: Monday, Sept. 21
Atrium Time: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
See:  CBCF representatives, breast health information, trivia and great giveaways
Location: Thompson Rivers University Campus, Old Main Student Street
