Lolo 1, Kenny Saint Brown, Denrele Edun, Shine Begho, Miss Tourism Nigeria, Tomi Odunsi, Kiki Omeili, Mr Ideal Nigeria (Best Body) and a host of others joined Exquisite Magazine at the Walk Against Cancer (EMAC) Walk 2016.
The 5th annual EMAC walk was held on the 3rd of September with a walk to and fro the LTV GROUND and Ikeja environs in Lagos.
It is an event held to with the aim of creating more awareness for cervical cancer and encouraging people to get screened and spread the word about cervical cancer, which is killing one woman every hour in Nigeria.
The highlight of the walk was encouraging people to attend the FREE SCREENING sessions which will be held every Friday from this Friday the 9th of September till the 9th of October at Optimal Cancer Care Foundation, 118 Bode Thomas Road, Surulere.
We ask that all women join us for this free screening even if you did not attend the walk.
According to Tewa Onasanya, the founder of Exquisite magazine and the EMAC Walk, “This year, we have been able to capture more people, especially the young sexually active women who are also at risk of cervical cancer, a form of cancer that is 100% preventable and one of the few cancers that presents a pre-cancer stage. We appreciate everyone that came out for the walk to raise more awareness and support our free screening campaign”.
Exquisite magazine appreciates everyone at the walk, celebrities, volunteers and people from the South African Community, led by the Consul General, Mr Darkey Africa and his wife.
