The RACE FOR THE CURE, the symbolic event organized by the Susan G. Komen Italia, consists of 3 days during which sport, health ad well-being are the main focuses of the event, culminating in a 5 km run or a 2,5 km walk around the historical centre of the city. Fondazione Poliambulanza is the Local Major Partner of such an important event which will take place from 14 to 16 October in C.so Zanardelli, Brescia.
The RACE was born in the USA, but since 2000 it has reached other country, seducing also Italy, where it has achieved great consensus (about 100.000 participants every year), becoming the most important event for the cure of brest cancer. It has also helped defeating the reticence and fear dealing with it, making women, the “Pink Women”, the real protagonist of the race. Their significative presence and commitment during the event is an important message of encouragement of support for all the 48.000 women receiving the diagnosis of breast cancer annually.
