Genevieve Pink Ball Foundation Walk, Run, Cycle - Bellanaija - September2014149

On Saturday 13th September 2014, The Genevieve Pink Ball Foundation had its first ever Run/Walk/Cycle to raise awareness for Breast Cancer.

The well-attended Run/Walk/Cycle, which was led by fitness guru Maje Ayida, kicked off at the Divine Mercy Church in Lekki, to Ikoyi and back.

The Genevieve Run/Walk/Cycle is one of the many activities leading up to the Genevieve Pink Ball scheduled to hold on Saturday 18th October 2014 to help support women both medically and financially towards the prevention and treatment of Breast Cancer. The Run/Walk/Cycle is also inline with the ‘100 Patient Challenge’, which the Pink Ball Foundation is aiming to achieve this year.

In Nigeria the majority of women diagnosed with breast cancer do not survive because their cancer is detected too late. Awareness is the First Step in the battle Against Breast Cancer. Herein lies our motivation to lend our platform Genevieve Pink Ball to the cause. Our ‘100 patient challenge’ is all about further Awareness Creation, Education and giving hope to the otherwise hopeless; treatment for 100 may seem an insignificant number but it’s a good start.” – Founder and C.E.O of Genevieve Magazine, Betty Irabor.

The Walk was a huge success as it attracted various people from all walks of life for the particular cause.

Celebrities present at the Genevieve Run/Walk/Cycle were the Genevieve Pinkball Ambassador Seyi Shay, Genevieve Nnaji, Funke Akindele, Betty Irabor, Mai Atafo, Fade Ogunro, Jumai Shaba, Maria Okanrende, Toolz, Lynxxx, Kaylah Oniwo, Beverly Naya, Chi Gurl, Bolanle Olukanmi, Zainab Balogun, Osas Ighodaro, Toke Makinwa, among others.

      Uhm she looks like she came to workout and do the run! You know, because it’s that type of charity event? …lol Unlike those that came in jeans and some with make up! #naturalpretty

      @Nene it is obvious, but don’t you think its because of the exercise??? they are all sweaty.

      I tire o! & her face is that un-smooth? Kai, its not good to say i wish i had her face o! Not knowing the skills that went into d smooth-face process…..& no, i’m not being a hater.

    • nene

      September 17, 2014 at 2:25 am

      why would you say a thing like that? not everyone has smooth, even skin. that’s why there’s makeup.

    Zainab is too cute. Even in running clothes.

    To all the ladies who were able to show up that morning without made up faces or laid hair – “bravo!” and again I say, “bravo!”.

    It’s always nice to see people taking proper care of their health but I gotta say that Betty Irabor, Ngozi Akintujoye & Genevieve are looking properly FIT and like they go that extra mile. Yassss! Well done, ladies!!

    • Ivy

      September 16, 2014 at 5:40 pm

      As in ehhh. Even Niyola, kunbi, zainab and ann ogunsulire, they look super fit. Toke wore an extra large top so I cant tell.

    • nene

      September 17, 2014 at 2:24 am

      some women are high maintenance and take their grooming very seriously, so it’s not a big deal. maybe they were there to support and walk, not necessarily to exercise or exert themselves.

  6. Chikala

    September 16, 2014 at 5:28 pm

    sorry oo! I am a fan of Toke but I noticed she’s not in soo many pictures, like you can’t feel her presence like you would in other photos, is it because she is without make up? #justsaying

    • Chloe

      September 17, 2014 at 9:50 am

      no its because she was with her HUSBAND, you would know this feeling if you can take time out of your busy schedule “stalking Toke and criticizing her” to actually go out and socialize and maybe get your own boo…..

      meanwhile i just love Yvonne Nwosu, you can easily tell she’s living her life carefree and enjoying it

    I need to understand why Toolz gets more flak for her weight than the likes of Chigurl or even Eniola Badmus, who are actually a lot fatter than Toolz? This makes absolutely no sense to me.
    Zainab Balogun is just too cute! And Jumai Shaba in denim shorts??? And Bolanle I love you long time but you could have made a bit more effort (yes I know it’s not the red carpet or anything), you look like you just got out of bed.

    • Nwa Ara

      September 16, 2014 at 7:41 pm

      Chigurl alwasy dresses to fit her body and draws not draw attention to her female anatomy by wearing tight clothes that just expose all contours and fat.
      You rarely see Toolz not highlighting her chest and ass. I hope it is a growth stage and that she outgrows it soon.

    Genevieve is classy, very very classy. Toke’s cheek bones are something else without make-up, i guess that’s why she covering her face with oversize shades. Thanks ladies for this awareness. I pray you achieve your 100 patients challenge. God bless you all.

    September 17, 2014 at 12:35 pm

    i was there ooo and i was really surprised at the way ladies splashed heavy foundation, and other make-up on their faces… toolz,Toke, Maria, na wa ooetc.. why you didn’t see Toke in lots of pictures was because she came in between the race, she didn’t start with us from the church ground and later ran away in a cab alongside Gbemi, Toke and that her designer friend (i have forgotten her name) .. Funke, Genny and few of us who woke up #flawless# much respect!

  25. karoloflyf

    September 18, 2014 at 5:16 pm

    thank God i finally see someone who could see and pinpoint such truth and that’s why she’s absent from taking *plenty picture* she just respect herself codely.

    I really wonder why all these people have to pose in order to raise awareness for Breast Cancer, has anyone benefitted from this walk? how many people has this Betty , given money or funded their payment for treatment, been a survivor of Breast Cancer i can honestly tell you that this project is not in the right path at all . Betty, needs to get testing centers from for Breast cancer in certain areas of the country to creat a better awareness

  28. ATL's Finest

    October 11, 2014 at 7:27 am

    I’m just curious to know who have suffered from Breast cancer in Gene’s fam or these folks? Not every event is meant for show OFFs!!! What happened to raising awareness for Malaria, Cholera, AIDS etc? We all know Breast cancer isn’t the #1 epidermic health issue in Nigeria. I’m not saying it’s not there.
