Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2022 - Make a difference in your workplace!

Breast cancer has now become the most commonly diagnosed cancer worldwide, with around 2.3 million people diagnosed yearly. For those who have lost loved ones to breast cancer, it's important to remember that many organizations out there help raise awareness for this disease and provide support for those affected by it. Early detection is key to survival rates for those diagnosed with this life-threatening disease.


In this post, we share engaging and inspiring ways you can raise awareness in your workplace for this important cause.

Pink Themed Bake Sale


Bake sales are fun and easy to put together. They also work as a way to educate others about the importance of raising breast cancer awareness. Set a date and encourage employees to create pink-themed treats, such as strawberry cupcakes, raspberry cookies, or other baked goods in pink packaging.


Management can support the baked goods with a company-sponsored morning tea, adding additional items to the menu. All proceeds from the bake sale can be donated to your chosen breast cancer society.

Guest Speaker


It is always a good idea to have a speaker at your event who can share their stories and experiences with breast cancer.

A guest speaker can be a friend, family member, or employee affected by breast cancer or a registered nurse who can speak about the importance of early detection and self-care. Take this a step further by partnering up with your health insurance provider for free access to screening and support services.


Wear Pink for a donation


Wearing pink is a great way to show support and raise awareness, especially when this extends from the office to the community. Employees can wear pink for a gold coin/donation or, alternatively, wear casual clothes and purchase a pink ribbon. Take this to another level by organizing a workplace community walk/run/Zumba class in the park - an event that can get friends and family members involved!

Hold a Workplace Raffle


Prizes can include a paid day off, a gift hamper, or a wellness experience. Excess proceeds from the ticket sales can be donated to the winner's breast cancer charity of choice.

Alternatively, the prize can be monetary, split 50/50 between the winner and the charity of choice.


As you can see, there are many ways to raise breast cancer awareness in your workplace. Each one can be tweaked to suit your organization's or group's needs.


The critical thing to remember is that it's not just about raising money but also connecting people with each other through important causes such as this one.
