Bling For Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast Cancer Awareness 

October 2022 is recognised as Breast Cancer Awareness month and breastcanceruk.org.uk is brimming with information and fundraising ideas. They also offer opportunities to get involved in existing events including “Step Out for Prevention”, “Run for Prevention” and many more. The message is one of movement and fitness as a prevention against the development of Breast Cancer and we at Bluestreak Crystals are keen to get up and get involved!

However we are determined to sparkle as we go! If you are planning to get involved this October, now is the perfect time to explore all things pink! Here are a few of the main fundraising events along with a few ideas on how to bring the bling and make sure your efforts are noticed by all!

Bald for Breast Cancer

This may seem like a daunting idea, but we have a member of our creative team who participated in Brave the Shave several years ago and she considered it,

“… a fantastic opportunity to embrace big bold sparkly earrings.”

Pendant earrings using the Light Rose AB coloured Heart shaped pendants from Serinity would be a great way draw attention to your cause.

Ditch the Drink

A modification of Sober October this is great opportunity to take that bottle of pink Gin and cover it entirely in glistening Serinity flatback crystals so that it will be a fitting trophy for your achievement! A member of our team who tackled Sober October in the past said;

“It was a challenge at the beginning when out with friends but mocktails were the key for me.”

If you’re keeping alcohol out of the house completely, you could transform your favourite cocktail glass into a stunning ornament with a few well placed rhinestones.

Trekking Challenge

Whether you’re hiking 25 kilometers or jogging a 5K marathon, blinged trainers are a fantastic way to stay one step ahead in the style lane. A colleague of ours who has completed three 5k marathons said;

“going in fancy dress was a big part of making the exercise fun for me, one time I wore a pink wig and a sparkly cape and I practically flew across the finish line!”  

Battle Cancer CrossFit Challenge

This offers you a chance to team up and get down the gym for some intense fundraising! Our in-house gym bunnies swear by their Bluestreak water bottles when attending the gym and these are perfect accessories for rhinestone embellishment with the help of CG500 Resin Glue.
