Paris Saint-Germain’s women’s team continue the fight against breast cancer

#OctobreRose

For the second year running, the players of Paris Saint-Germain’s women’s team are giving their support to the Octobre Rose (“Pink October”) campaign, which aims to raise awareness of the importance of breast cancer screening and to raise money for research.

“I am delighted to be supporting the Octobre Rose campaign,” said Paris Saint-Germain captain Irene Paredes. “It’s a fight that’s close to my heart. It’s important for women to know that when detected early, breast cancer can be cured in nine out of ten cases.

 

“Breast cancer is a disease that can afflict any woman and it’s our duty to raise awareness. Annual breast screening by a health professional is a simple step that can save many lives.” said Eve Périsset.

 

To promote the fight against breast cancer the Parisian club has changed its logo for the month of October, with the pink ribbon replacing the Eiffel Tower. 

Some 2,000 badges representing that commitment were handed out at the Parisian derby against Paris FC at the Stade Jean-Bouin on Saturday 19 October. The Paris Saint-Germain players wore pink armbands on the pitch, while representatives and volunteers from the  Octobre Rose charity were in the stands to watch the match.
