Halifax Port Authority and Ambassatours Support the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation - Atlantic Region

October 3, 2013 – Halifax, N.S. – The Halifax Port Authority is proud to partner with Ambassatours to support the activities of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) - Atlantic Region during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For a second year, the Halifax Port Authority has decided to “Get Pink’d!” during the month of October.

Visitors can tour Halifax in style aboard bright pink Ambassatours tour buses thanks to BIG Pink Sightseeing. The popular double-decker tours raise funds throughout the cruise-ship season, by donating $1 from each ticket sold on select buses to CBCF- Atlantic Region. During the month of October, the Halifax Port Authority has committed to matching this amount, up to $3,000.

Members of CBCF – Atlantic Region and Ambassatours will be on site at the Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market today to promote breast health and educate visitors. Additionally, employees of the Halifax Port Authority are being encouraged to Go Pink in their work place, with a casual day fundraising program.
