The Rome edition of the world’s biggest event in support of breast cancer took place on Sunday 20 May, and EJR-Quartz staff were there to show their support. Organised by the Susan G. Komen Association, funds raised by the event go towards cancer awareness and breast cancer prevention programmes.
A record-breaking 70,000 people took part in the 5 km race this year, the course taking participants through the beautiful historic centre of Rome, for once free of traffic. From EJR-Quartz Erica Rolfe, Maria Bennett, Kelsea Brennan-Wessels Marcello Cappelletti completed the race. With funds raised through the Race for the Cure since 2000, Komen Italia has raised around 3 million euros and has set up over 421 projects and associations in the fight against breast cancer.
