Think Pink Europe: together we Race for the Cure

The Race for the Cure is the world’s largest walking and running event in the fight against breast cancer. After losing her sister to breast cancer, Nancy G. Brinker founded the American breast cancer organisation Susan G. Komen. In 1983, the first Race for the Cure in Dallas welcomed 800 participants. An unexpected success! Nowadays, 1 million people gather in over 140 cities around the world to celebrate life and honour those who lost their lives due to the disease.

Front of solidarity against breast cancer

Each Race for the Cure® unites people affected by breast cancer, and their family, friends and sympathisers. During the Race for the Cure®, survivors celebrate life, while participants show their support to their loved ones. Together they commemorate those who are no longer with us because of the most common type of cancer in women.

The Race for the Cure: Pink power

Worldwide, one impressive image summarises the Race for the Cure: survivors wearing a pink T-shirt surrounded by their supportive entourage in a white T-shirt. 

One Day, One Race

Women affected by breast cancer are at the heart of the Race for the Cure®. It is a strong sign of support. To enhance this message, we will be hosting the European Races for the Cure on the last Sunday of September, on the eve of the international breast cancer month October. The Race Season kick-off is in Rome, which celebrates its 20th edition.
