Mando climbs a mountain for breast cancer charity CoppaFeel!

Mando are hoping to raise £10,000 to support CoppaFeel!

Breast cancer charity CoppaFeel! is teaming-up with Fabulous magazine for its annual Fabulous Challenge, which this year focuses on a trek of the Himalayas.

CoppaFeel! is the only breast cancer awareness charity in the UK specifically focused on raising awareness of the signs and symptoms of breast cancer in young people, with the aim of reducing levels of late detection and misdiagnosis of breast cancer.

The charity was founded in 2009 by Kris Hallenga, who was diagnosed with incurable breast cancer at the age of 23. Ten years later, Hallenga is still fighting and CoppaFeel! continues to spread the word, encouraging young women everywhere to get to know their boobs.

A team from promotional solutions agency Mando will join Coppafeel! on this year’s trek, having worked with the charity for a number of years on a pro-bono basis.

Mando chief executive Becky Munday said: “Mando has been a champion of CoppaFeel! for a number of years now. During that time we’ve helped CoppaFeel! with their brand partnership strategy and continuously help to negotiate brand partnership deals.

"We’re extremely happy to announce that Team Mando are actually taking part in this year’s Fabulous Challenge. But before we do the trek, we are aiming to raise £10,000 for CoppaFeel! Cancer is something that has touched many of our lives here at Mando and we can’t wait to go that one step further and raise as much money and awareness as possible. We look forward to keeping everyone updated on our journey.”
