In a joint venture to recognise Breast Cancer Awareness, Evian, a healthy lifestyle brand, partnered with the Jamaica Red Cross for the 'Pink & Pure for a Cure' initiative across the island. This special initiative will see the brand donating JA$1000 to the Jamaica Red Cross for every six-pack of specially labelled Evian one-litre bottle sold last October.

The cheque donation was made at the Jamaica Red Cross in Central Village, St Catherine in January

Research reveals that 40 of every 100,000 Jamaican women tested annually are diagnosed with breast cancer. Chas. E. Ramson Limited, distributors of Evian natural spring water in Jamaica, is committed to developing a healthier nation and together with the Jamaica Red Cross, stands dedicated to raising awareness and aiding in the education of Jamaican women on the importance of early detection.

Evian brand manager, Phillip Keane-Dawes said, 'We want to highlight the importance of early detection and strongly believe in spreading the message of awareness, regular testing within communities and encourage good health practices among our Jamaican women.
