Race for the Cure celebrates its 25th edition in Rome

The largest event in Italy and in the world for the fight against breast cancer, the Race for the Cure this year celebrates its 25th edition in Rome in the splendid setting of the Circus Maximus. The village will be open from Thursday 9th to Sunday 12th May with many free health, sport and wellbeing initiatives. A success that has grown year after year, the Race for the Cure is the symbolic event of Komen Italia, a non-profit organization based on volunteering that has been working since 2000 in the fight against breast cancer and in the protection of women’s health, the theme of great social relevance. The protagonists of the Race for the Cure are the Women in Pink, women who are facing or have faced breast cancer who, with their special pink shirt, raise public awareness of the importance of prevention and send a strong message of encouragement to the 56,000 women who deal with the disease every year in Italy. By wearing the official shirt and the donation receipt, you will have free access to the main state museums. For the Roman edition, the Ministry of Culture opened the doors to the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine, Vittoriano but also Palazzo Massimo and Palazzo Barberini and many others.
