BUDAPEST -  Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual international health campaign every October to prevention, fund raising and cure. Grammy award-winning singer and actress Olivia Newton John - a breast cancer survivor herself- will stay at Hilton Budapest Hotel from 2-4 October to raise awareness about the disease among Hungarian women.

Olivia will be leading a march over the beautiful historic Chain Bridge lit up in pink for the occasion and named the "Bridge of Health" for one night.

The initiative was launched by US Ambassador to Hungary Nancy Goodman Brinker in 2002 for promoting healthy living and early screaming for breast cancer, still one of the top causes of early death for Hungarian women.

GM Zoltán Árvai representing Hilton Budapest Hotel as one of the top sponsors of the event is going to lead a group of about 40 team members in pink T-shirts over the illuminated Chain Bridge.

"We are very proud to support and promote this great program and are honored to be a symbol of corporate social responsibility for that night." said Mr. Árvai.
