Thousands Participate in Greece’s ‘Race for the Cure’



Thousands took part in Greece’s Race for the Cure in Athens on Sunday, the country’s most successful education and fundraising event for breast cancer.

Women, men, and children join in the fight against breast cancer once a year, participating in a great celebration of strength, hope, power, and life.

First organized in 1983, after the promise of Nancy Brinker to her dying sister that she would do everything she could to end breast cancer forever, the Komen Race for the Cure Series has grown from one Race with 800 people in Dallas to a global series of more than 150 Races with over 1 million people participating on four continents.

Greece Race for the Cure is a running event against breast cancer, organized in Athens by Hellenic Association of Women with Breast Cancer “Alma Zois”, in collaboration with the Organization of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
