Run for The Cure®/Walk for Life 2019 was held on Saturday, November 30th. It’s was a great fun time outdoors with family, friends, and co-workers to help raise greater breast cancer awareness in Japan.

On behalf of every person who benefits from our initiatives, we would like to thank you for joining us.
See you next year!

All proceeds raised will go towards the Foundation’s community outreach programs including The Lemon Project seminar/workshops, publication of PiNK – our quarterly bilingual magazine for women’s health, and Pink Beauty Party events for breast cancer patients and survivors. Our programs are all developed and carried out free-of-charge to improve the QOL of women and men touched by breast cancer, as well as to raise greater awareness in Japan – both in the Japanese speaking and international communities.
