First Bank of Nigeria Limited as part of its Corporate Responsibility interventions has partnered with Sebeccly Cancer Care and Support Centre to create awareness about cancer, initiate action amongst women to get screened and provide access to quality cancer care.
FirstBank is supporting the Centre’s Light Lagos Pink Campaign, an annual statewide fundraising campaign to promote breast cancer awareness and raise funds to support breast cancer treatment.
This year’s campaign is taking place on October 10, 2015 at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos. The Light Lagos Pink campaign is the biggest breast cancer event in Nigeria, with a reach of over one million people.
