Greece Race for the Cure® takes place the last Sunday of September in Athens. This year, it is held for the 11th year, on Sunday, September 29th, 2019.

Greece Race for the Cure® is now one of the most popular Races for breast cancer awareness in Europe and it is the largest sports event with a social purpose in Greece, bringing together more than 150,000 participants throughout the history of the event. Through the Race for the Cure® we are part of a global initiative to support breast cancer patients, toο. 

Information, awareness and support for women who are under treatment, for women –survivors and for the 
general population are non-negotiable objectives of the Greece Race for the Cure® and the Hellenic Association of Women with Breast Cancer “Alma Zois”.

This year, for the first time, the Run of Athens joins Greece Race for the Cure® against breast cancer with a route of 10 Km with a timing chip.
