Come Saturday, September 7, 2019, some celebrities will engage in a cooking competition at the Johnson Jakande Tinubu Garden, Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos.
The competition will take place as the Atinuke Cancer Foundation holds another round of cancer awareness programme, tagged ‘Let’s Kill It’.
The event which begins at 7am will feature a free health check, a low tempo aerobics session, a 5km fitness walk challenge and a cooking competition among Nollywood stars. There will also be a short lecture and a meet and greet with attending celebrities.
The free health check includes a cervical cancer check, breast examination, HIV test, Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) check, blood sugar check and blood pressure.
According to founder of the initiative, Tinu Lawal, who is also a cancer survivor, “it is our practice annually, to go from community to community conducting free health check, creating cancer awareness, campaigning eradication of cancer, educating, informing, advocating, inspiring and supporting not only the cancer patients but their families and the general public.”
