Monaco will turn pink this coming March in support of Pink Ribbon Monaco and their ongoing fight against breast cancer.

It has become one of those not to be missed events in the Principality and for the 4th consecutive year, Monaco will turn out in support of Pink Ribbon Monaco to fundraise and help raise awareness about this terrible disease.

Breast cancer is the most common form of feminine cancer worldwide, comprising 16% of all female cancers, but it can be beaten. When detected at an early stage, it can usually be cured, but the chances of survival rapidly decrease as the tumour spreads. It is for this reason that information and early detection save lives.

So this 15th March, you can too participate in the annual walk organised by Pink Ribbon Monaco and join hundreds of other people wearing pink tutus, pink wigs or pink hats. The walk is open to everybody – women, men, children, the elderly, babies, cancer survivors and even dogs – and will take you on a 5km loop around Port Hercule and its environs.

Pink Ribbon is a worldwide campaign and you may have already heard about the numerous walks that are taking place regularly all across the globe.

However, Pink Ribbon Monaco, which was founded in the Spring 2011 remains an independent charity that focuses its actions on the region and the Principality. Through various fun events (Poker tournament, introduction to paddle board…), and under the guidance of the Centre Hospitalier Princesse Grace, its goal is to educate people on the importance of early detection and the necessity to create an environment where women who have found a lump in their breast do not have to wait too long to have a biopsy or receive treatment.
