Miami Design District Rises for Breast Cancer Awareness Month
As October slowly comes to an end, there is still some times before Breast Cancer Awareness Month if officially over. Of course, it is important to always be aware of it and come together as one. Luckily, Miami Design District has had and will end the month with a series of events taking place in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, including the fifth annual Fashion Strikes Cancer benefit. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Fashion Strikes Cancer’s fifth anniversary, the neighborhood is hosting a series of events taking place throughout October in support of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The series of events kicked off on October 1st with a stellar Sunset Yoga class led by Ahana Yoga founder, Dawn Feinberg, alongside Fashion Strikes Cancer founder, Angeles Almuna, with ticket proceeds benefiting the BCRF. In solidarity with Breast Cancer research, the neighborhood’s iconic Buckminster Fuller’s Fly’s Eye Dome has been and will continue to be illuminated in pink each night for the entire month. In addition, the neighborhood is also turning its Styling Suite pink, showcasing pink items donated by various participating retailers throughout the Miami Design District.
On Sunday, October 18th, the Miami Design District in conjunction with Rapha Racing, hosted an MDD x Rapha “Braking Cancer” Bike Ride in Jungle Plaza. All riders received a satin pink ribbon along with gift packages provided by Rapha and an MDD tote and mask. Tickets cost $10 with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the BCRF.
Coming up this week, on Saturday, October 24th, Miami Design District and Rapha will join forces once again to host a Fashion Strikes Cancer 5K Run/Walk. Taking place at 7:30AM in Jungle Plaza, tickets will be sold for $5 with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the BCRF. To learn more or RSVP, please visit the link HERE.
