Rome welcomes back the world’s largest event for breast cancer awareness.

Race for the Cure is Europe’s biggest sporting event for women’s health. It helps breast cancer organisations and hospitals to collect funds and raise awareness. With 500,000 new diagnoses and 125,000 people who die of breast cancer in Europe every year, these funds are of vital importance.

The program of the 2024 edition.

Rome will be the city from which the XXV edition of the Race for the Cure 2024 will start, taking place at the Circo Massimo from May 9th to May 12th, followed by four other Italian cities: Bari (May 17th – May 19th), Bologna (September 20th – September 22nd), Brescia (September 27th – September 29th), and Matera (September 27th – September 29th).


Race for the Cure Village

The Village will be set up in the splendid setting of the Circo Massimo and will be open from Thursday, May 9th to Sunday, May 12th, offering numerous free health, sports, and wellness initiatives.

The Health Village will offer free services and consultations open to all, and, thanks to the support of the Mobile Units of the “Prevention Caravan,” there will be a dedicated pathway for women in conditions of socio-economic fragility, and for the first time, for transgender individuals.

Furthermore, with the collaboration of numerous sports federations, ample space will be dedicated to sports, a fundamental element for a healthy lifestyle.

In the area dedicated to Women in Pink, the true protagonists of the Race, numerous activities will be organized for the well-being of the mind and body, guided by teachers with extensive experience, with the aim of improving the quality of life and alleviating the side effects of oncological therapies.
