Since 2000, Hong Kong Cancer Fund has been hosting the Pink Revolution to raise awareness for breast health and support those who are affected.

With the slogan “No Matter What Size You Are, Check Regularly”, Hong Kong Cancer Fund aims to raise three million dollars this year to sustain free breast cancer care services. The Pink Revolution campaign designates 27 October as “Dress Pink Day”, during which you can dress up in pink to raise awareness. You can also organise a DIY fundraising gathering on that day to raise proceeds to sponsor Pink Recovery Packs for breast cancer patients after surgery.
Additionally, during the Pink Revolution, you can participate in the “Shop For Good” scheme. Merchants like Pizza Express, Zojirushi, Conrad Hong Kong, and more are offering limited-edition items to raise money for the Cancer Fund’s work in supporting free breast cancer care services and local research.
