Greece Race for the Cure ® is a unique experience.

Race For the Cure is a symbol for me. Just like my fight with breast cancer, during which I kept on trying, this is how I feel for this Race.

In 2012, in my first race, I was scared and I barely managed to walk 2 km. Two years later, seeing the sticker of an other survivor with the message "I won" I got so much power that I felt fearless. Last year I participated in my own "I Won". And so I became more.
I could not imagine what I would be living. Inside the metro, in the streets, world - women, men, children wear together wearing the Race t-shirt. We recognized each other as if we had known each other for a long time, we were smiling and understood each other We were going to a celebration.
