The Police department with all its grandeur was present. Breast cancer survivors also spoke at the occasion and were present in big numbers.

The Slogan for the Marathon â€œJoin us to run Breast cancer out of townâ€. The message (1) Losing is not an option - Losing ones life or the breast to breast cancer is not an option.
A) Breast cancer is preventable and curable to the extent of 95 to 98%
B) Breast should never be lost to breast cancer. It should be preserved or reconstructed.
Bollywood superstar Kajol is the ambassador for this cause. If women realize that they will not suffer mutilation due to breast cancer they will be willing to get diagnosed early and hence the cure rates will increase.
