    This is totally wrong, you are raising an awareness and giving out prices which includes trip to Dubai, free event coordination, luxury interiors items, household provisions, seasonal hampers and much more!.
    Why not donate all the proceedings to do much more things such as helping with medical bills for people who have been diagnosed and are struggling to pay hospital bills, house rents, school fees etc. than sending wrong messages about enjoyment with cancer?

      Have you sat down to think of how these prizes came about? Have you though of it that it is possible that these prizes were donated by owners of business who did this as a contribution towards the event and that no money was spent sourcing of these things. If the gifts can be converted to cash through raffle why not. It makes more sense to me though. Just my thoughts. We shouldn’t be quick to judge and I don’t think it’s all organizations that go out to scam people. Not with this type of advertisement. We should give them a benefit of doubt and support a cause. God is the ultimate judge and all knowing, so He will judge all according to their works.

      @ Anointed, you come across very judgmental.
      I will love to see people with breast cancer been the beneficiary instead. The money kindly donated should be used towards the process of groundbreaking new research, buying and donating equipment needed, establishing free walk in centers etc.
      Lets help all the ones still fighting against it, we won’t let it win!!

    Somehow the pricing coems across very wrong. If they wanted to really get to it, they should get a free park and ask for donations. People will be more likely to give them N500 or N1000 if they are really serious. Once again an awareness campaign for their clique.

    All proceeds will go towards treating patients with breast cancer and distributing 30,000 Breast Cancer Awareness brochures across the country.With the regards to the prizes, a few of our sponsors generously donated them as cash alternatives just to support event. Our focus is awareness and the lack of it is killing a lot of our people. We can do this through fun marathons like Zumbathon. Breast Cancer Awareness is the key and early detection saves lives.

    @@pinkfunky,u are d judgemental one…I bet you have never done anythin to support any cause in your life!!!!the idea behind the prices is to encourage people to buy the tickets –
    If they converted their prices to money,they won’t get as much as selling raffle tickets&allowing people win..marketing 101,@ d end of d day,the most important thing is they get a lot of money using the best strategy possible
    Can a pregnant woman join this classes please?
