Run together against cancer

By on May 30, 2017

The Pink Band Race, formerly known as Lidingö Tjejlopp, is a popular race in beautiful scenery that finishes the appreciated folk party during the TCS Lidingöloppweekend. New for this year is that the race opens a starting group also for men, where it is possible to run 10 or 4 km, while contributing to the fight against cancer. In this mixed group, half of the start-up fee goes to the Cancer Fund and Swedish cancer research.

– We hope that the mixed group will inspire to carry out the race together with loved ones, perhaps support someone who is not good or just returned from a disease period. Opening up for male participants is a way for us to manifest and give everyone the chance to show their commitment to the matter, said Tomas Hoszek, Lidingöloppet’s general secretary.

It’s gratifying that the Pink Band race this year will allow everyone to participate and show their commitment. I hope that as many people as possible will sign up for this wonderful folk party, where we inspire physical activity and spread knowledge about how everyone can reduce their risk of cancer through healthy living habits, said Ulrika Årehed Kågström, General Secretary of the Cancer Fund.

The TCS Lidingölopp weekend on 22-24 September will be the start of the October Pink Band campaign for the purpose of financing cancer research, spread knowledge about cancer prevention and breast cancer, as well as conducting an impact on politicians and decision makers.
