Breast cancer awareness month is a yearly campaign that intends to educate people about the importance of early screening, testing and more. This campaign starts on October 1st and ends on October 31st every year.
A variety of events around the world are organized in October to support Breast Cancer Awareness, including walks and runs, and the pink illumination of landmark buildings.
The largest and most well known Breast Cancer event, the Race for the Cure, was held for the first time in October 1983 in Dallas, Texas, where 800 people participated. According to the organizers, by 2002 the number of participants reached 1.3 million and the event was held in over 100 US cities. Race for the Cure has invested over $2 billion dollars to fulfill their promise of playing a critical role in virtually every major advancement in breast cancer. But, there is still work to be done.
