Breast Cancer Awareness Month at The Miami Design District



In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Miami Design District is pleased to host a series of five events taking place throughout the neighborhood, including its fifth annual Fashion Strikes Cancer benefit, in support of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Fashion Strikes Cancer was founded and led by fashion visionary, stylist and breast cancer survivor, Angeles Almuna, to commemorate her battle with cancer and to give hope to all those who are suffering, have suffered, or have lost a loved one to cancer. This year, in celebration of the fifth anniversary of Fashion Strikes Cancer, the neighborhood is proud to host a series of five events set to take place throughout the month of October in support of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The series of events kicked off with a stellar Sunset Yoga class which took place on October 1st in Palm Court led by Ahana Yoga founder, Dawn Feinberg, alongside Angeles where guests enjoyed a special performance by Jahzel Dotel with ticket proceeds benefiting the BCRF. In addition, the neighborhood’s iconic Buckminster Fuller’s Fly’s Eye Dome, has been and will continue to be illuminated in pink each night for the entire month. In solidarity with Breast Cancer research, the neighborhood is also turning its Styling Suite pink, showcasing pink items donated by various participating retailers throughout the Miami Design District.

Moreover, on Sunday, October 18th, the Miami Design District in conjunction with Rapha Racing, hosted an MDD x Rapha “Braking Cancer” Bike Ride at 6:30AM in Jungle Plaza. All riders received a satin pink ribbon along with gift packages with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the BCRF.

Coming up this week on Saturday, October 24th, Miami Design District and Rapha will join forces once again to host a Fashion Strikes Cancer 5K Run/Walk. Taking place at 6:30AM in Jungle Plaza, tickets are available for $5 each with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the BCRF. To RSVP, please visit the link HERE.
