GTT Pinktober Walk 2023: Massive turnout of over 10,000 marks triumph of solidarity – Guyana Times
In a spectacular display of solidarity on Sunday, this year’s GTT Pinktober Walk witnessed an overwhelming turnout as thousands of participants flooded the streets of Georgetown, dressed in various shades of pink, to raise awareness about breast cancer.
The sea of pink-clad participants, stretching as far as the eye could see, marched through the heart of the city, creating an atmosphere of unity and hope. This year’s event, which exceeded all expectations, showcased the unwavering commitment of the Guyanese community in the fight against breast cancer.
Balinda Drakes, a breast cancer survivor for the past three years, shared her thoughts on the event. “The walk was lovely. The exercise and everything were good all in one. It served a really good purpose because I had the chance to reach a whole lot of survivors. When I found out I didn’t take it so badly, trusted in God and I put my treatment and everything in front and I had good support.”
“It was a hard and tough road to travel but with God by my side and support from others, I was able to get through.”
Chief Commercial Officer of GTT, Kerchelle Jn Charles said it was heartening to witness the meaningful impact of the event on the lives of thousands of Guyanese.
She said soon the company will be making an announcement about the success of the entire campaign, including how much money was raised for the cause, before making donations to several cancer support organisations and the Ministry of Health.
Earlier this month, GTT, in collaboration with the Health Ministry and several non-governmental cancer support organisations, committed to offering more than 2500 free mammograms to members of the public who qualify.
