The iconic brand’s hotel in Desaru Coast, Johor, has kicked off its yearly campaign to support awareness and research for breast cancer.
Hard Rock International continues its annual campaign for PINKTOBER as the brand comes together to support breast cancer awareness and research with limited-edition merchandise, food and beverage menu items, and local events.
Throughout the month of October, Hard Rock Hotel Desaru Coast will be participating in the campaign through fundraising efforts supporting the Hard Rock Heals Foundation, the charitable arm of Hard Rock, with proceeds benefiting the Breast Cancer Support Group Johor Bahru and its efforts to provide affordable silicone breast prosthesis to breast cancer patients and survivors. Hard Rock continues to live out its mottos of “Love All – Serve All” and “Take Time To Be Kind” with its steadfast support throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month, with the goal of lending a hand to the people and communities that need it most.
“Hard Rock Hotel Desaru Coast is honoured to support those in need, especially those in our local community through Breast Cancer Support Group Johor Bahru during PINKTOBER,” said Murray Aitken, General Manager at Hard Rock Hotel Desaru Coast. “It’s a privilege to bring our guests and community members together through fundraising events that deliver a unifying message of strength, hope, and awareness for those affected by this disease.”
According to Datin Dr Ho Eu Len, President of the Breast Cancer Support Group Johor Bahru, at least 1 in 4 Malaysians are affected by cancer with breast cancer; unsurprisingly, it’s the most common form affecting women in Malaysia. “We appreciate Hard Rock Hotel Desaru Coast’s support for the cause and bringing awareness to breast cancer is definitely an important step towards a healthy society,” she said.
