BLACK Mix Lesotho has partnered with Avani Hotels for the Warrior Run; a race meant to celebrate the Men’s Health Month on 23 November 2019.
The Men’s Health Month is celebrated in November annually and the race will start at Avani Lesotho and end at Avani Maseru.
Black Mix founder and chief executive officer Manisha Black told the Xpress People that the event would this year focus on creating awareness about different forms of cancer.
She said participants would be dressed in purple speedos.
“It takes guts to run through Maseru only wearing a purple speedo,” Black said.
“The run will be held in the spirit of creating awareness on testicular cancer.
“We encourage men to participate in solidarity with brothers suffering from cancer or they can help us honour those who have lost their lives to cancer.”
She said apart from being fun, the run was “the right thing, unique and empowering”.
“It is also about being the talk of the town. November is Men’s Health Month and we want to use this opportunity to make a difference in the country.
“This event is designed to eradicate the behaviour of ignoring the biggest threat to men’s health; which is prostate cancer,” she said.
Black said one in every six men suffers from prostate cancer and the Warrior Run is designed to raise awareness on this fact and encourage men to get tested for cancer.
