'Race for the Cure', one of the most successful breast cancer awareness and fundraising events in the world, will go digital this year.
Normally, the race is held in 150 cities worldwide, and about a million people usually .participate. Funds raised through the races are used for free check-ups, mammography scans and awareness raising efforts. Last year, more than 8,000 people participated in the humanitarian race.
However, the coronavirus pandemic has stopped all mass gatherings this year, which is why the organizers of the ‘Race for the Cure’ have decided to go digital. They created an online platform, available in 22 different languages, which will connect people from 30 countries across Europe.
Participants and teams can register and choose their own walking or running track in their neighborhood, town or municipality. Organizers will provide target distances of 3 and 5 km for those tracks, but those who want to can of course opt for a longer distance. The online platform will welcome visitors with a real wall of fame with photos of all registered teams and partners are put in the spotlight. Participants can register for digital competitions or leave a message in the guestbook.
Registration fee for Bosnia and Herzegovina will cost BAM 10. Participants can register at https://www.raceforthecure.eu/bs/
