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 organizations 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 organizations, hospitals, support groups, and governmental organizations 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 few years, it became clearer that a deeper collaboration was the key to reducing mortality and – hopefully – stopping breast cancer once and for all.
Think Pink Europe aims to improve and accelerate the exchange of information and best practices in health care and research. It focuses on reducing disparities in to access healthcare and closing the healthcare gap between European countries.
Since 2021, more than 25 organizations are part of the Think Pink Europe community and we welcome others!
Race for the Cure® : 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® in 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.
In 2023 Race for the Cure® was back on track, with both big and small physical events in Europe, as well as local teams racing in their own environment, raising awareness and funds for the breast cancer organization of their choice.
Would you like to be part of the Race for the Cure adventure with your breast cancer organization, hospital, or support group? Please contact us to see how we can get you involved.
