This weekend in Dubrovnik the Lapad Run will be held in which Du Motion and the Dubrovnik-Neretva County Public Health Institute will jointly mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The whole day start at 9:30am this Sunday in the bay of Lapad.
"We invite the people of Dubrovnik to respond as much as possible to Sunday's race and to support this noble cause,” said the director of Du Motion Alen Boskovic. He explained how participants can choose between walking or running on two sections - 5 or 10 km, all in order to raise awareness of the importance of regular preventive examinations and early detection of the disease.
According to the current data of the County Institute of Public Health, in the Dubrovnik-Neretva County, one case of breast cancer is detected every four days, while at the country level as many as six new cases are detected daily. However, the disease is curable in over 95 percent of cases if detected in time.
All those interested can register for the race until Friday, October 22 via the official Du Motion website. And here is a link - du-motion.com
