Joining forces in Europe to help bridge the gap in women's health care
Think Pink Europe was created in March 2018 by five European organisations fighting against breast cancer in Belgium (Think-Pink), Bosnia-Herzegovina (Think Pink, 'Zajedno Smo Jedno'), Greece (Alma Zois), Italy (Susan.G Komen Italia), and Romania (Fundatia Renasterea).
All across Europe, local breast cancer organisations, hospitals, support groups and governmental organisations actively work on a common objective: eradicate breast cancer. The disease remains the most common type of cancer in Europe, affecting women particularly. Over the last years, it became clearer that a deeper collaboration was the key to reduce mortality and – hopefully – stop breast cancer once and for all.
Think Pink Europe aims at improving and accelerating the exchange of information and best practices on health care and research. It focuses on reducing disparities to access health care and closing the health care gap between European countries.
In 2021, more than 30 organisations are part of the Think Pink Europe community and more members will be added soon.
Race for the Cure® 2021: the biggest walk & run in Europe
We at Think Pink Europe strongly believe in working together, exchanging best practices, and using the same flagship Race for the Cure® on every possible location. In 2020 we planned to organise 30 Races for the Cure with 300,000 participants in 22 countries in Europe.
The COVID-19 pandemic changed these plans. This situation has inspired us to join forces and take Race for the Cure® to the next level. We invited everyone in Europe to participate in the digital Race for the Cure® and throw a lifeline to help breast cancer patients, healthcare workers and hospitals by collecting funds and raising awareness.
The first edition of the 'digital' Race for the Cure® in 2020 was a great success. We collected 540,000 euros, with 41,000 participants, 4500 teams and 5200 sponsors, for 36 breast cancer charities in 32 countries in Europe.
Would you like to be part of the Race for the Cure adventure with your breast cancer organisation, hospital or support group? Please contact us to see how we can get you involved.
