Community members are invited to “step into the ring with Wacoal to help knock out breast cancer” at the upcoming Fi(GH)t for the Cure event. The event takes place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, March 16, at Dillard’s in South Park Mall, located at 4400 Sharon Road, Charlotte.
Women from the area can come out to receive a complimentary bra fitting from a Wacoal fit specialist in either Wacoal or b.tempt’d intimate apparel. Wacoal will donate $2 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure for every participant, and an additional $2 for every clothing item purchased at the event.
As breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer death for American women (accounting for 26 percent of all types of cancer among women), Fi(GH)t for the Cure strives to encourage women to self-examine to detect any abnormalities at an early stage. Women are invited to sign up for monthly e-mails reminding them to self-examine.
In addition to raising money for the fight against breast cancer, the event also aims to educate women about bra fitting. According to research, 8 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong sized bra. Fi(GH)t for the cure encourages women to be professionally fitted once a year to ensure body fluctuations have not caused changes in their bra size.
