Breast Cancer Screening Highlighted In Walk Over Budapest Bridge
A walk is taking place on 30th September, Sunday across Budapest’s Chain Bridge to raise awareness of breast cancer.

The Breast Cancer Association said in a statement that almost 8,500 people are diagnosed each year in Hungary with the disease.

Before the annual walk across the bridge at sundown, various programmes such as medical examinations and informative talks were held.

Today the Éva Körtvélyes journalism prize will be awarded as well as scholarships endowed by Nancy Brinker, a former US ambassador to Hungary, who has supported breast cancer awareness in Hungary since 2002.
