Komen Italia celebrates 25 years with Race for the Cure in Rome

Race for the Cure raises awareness and funds for breast cancer.

The 2024 edition of the Komen Race for the Cure will take place on the streets of central Rome on Sunday 12 May to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer.

Italian president Sergio Mattarella will launch the 25th edition of the charity sporting event which will be followed by races in Bari, Bologna, Brescia and Matera.

The Rome event is divided into three categories: a non-competitive 5-km run; a 2-km walk; and a competitive 5-km race.

The main event on 12 May is preceded by a three-day festival of health and fitness workshops, family activities and free medical screening at the Race Village in the Circus Maximus, from 9-11 May.

The money raised goes towards funding educational and early detection programmes to help fight breast cancer.

To participate in the event - which is open to men, women and children - register online with a minimum donation of €15.

The Race for the Cure begins at the Circus Maximus at 10.00, taking in landmarks including the Colosseum and the Baths of Caracalla along the way, bfore finishing back at the starting point.

This year will also see the launch of the first edition of Rowing for the Cure on the river Tiber, from Ponte Garibaldi to Ponte Regina Margherita, on 12 May.

Thanks to the funds raised by the Race for the Cure, over the last 25 years Komen Italia has been able to invest more than €26 million in research, prevention and support projects for women with breast cancer.

Full information about the Rome event, including how to donate, can be found on the Race for the Cure Italia website.
