All day long, this Saturday, October 14, 2023, activities were organized in support of the fight against breast cancer.

Many Mendois and Lozériens adorned themselves in pink this Saturday, October 14, 2023, on the occasion of the Pink Challenge organized in Mende. Stands, workshops, hikes, running and cycling races, initiations, meals, music, color runs… The city was lively during this event dedicated to the fight against breast cancer. “It’s not just a day of music, it’s also a day to talk about screening!” proclaims Cathy Paulhac, vice-president of the Lozère committee of the League against Cancer, on the Place de la République. Before proudly announcing that Lozère had just exceeded the threshold of 50% of women who were screened.

Guillaume Caparos in the spotlight

During this Pink Challenge, Guillaume Caparos, who had written and composed music for Pink October in Lozère, sang twice, accompanied by around ten women who danced. For the first time, the artist participated in this Pink Challenge, a success according to him. Which already makes him want to repeat the experience next time, if his schedule allows it. “I already have some creative ideas for 2024…”

All pink

In the parking lot near Faubourg Montbel, around 4 p.m., the brave athletes who walked, ran or cycled impatiently awaited the moment of the color run. Then as soon as the green light was given, they had fun spraying themselves with pink powder. A great way to end this day by seeing life in pink…

Sprinkled with pink powder! The participants of the Color run had fun one last time before closing this Pink Challenge, in Mende.
