Former beauty queen-turned-actress Gul Panag, a fitness enthusiast, has lent support to Pinkathon Mumbai 2013, an exclusive women's only 10 km run here for breast cancer awareness.
Pinkathon - Run to Lead, the multi-category running event will be held on December 15.
The run will be led by avid runner Milind Soman.
The focus of the event is to encourage women's health and fitness and to create awareness about breast cancer.
The Dor actress believes a platform like Pinkathon will "go a long way in educating people about the cause and prevention of a much-neglected ailment like breast cancer".
"Not many people know that it is among the curable cancers if detected early. I urge women to become more alert and aware about the disease," added the 34-year-old.
