The Pink Ribbon Race

Smile, joy and laughter - and a contribution to a healthier life for everyone

The Pink Ribbon Race is ten hilly and soft kilometers on the green island of Lidingö. Together with all other participants, you create a true festival. You run to have a lot of fun, and at the same time you contribute to the important fight against cancer. 

The Pink Ribbon Race

The Pink Ribbon Race wants to inspire to physical activity and to spread knowledge about how the risk for cancer can be decreased by a healthy way of living. The race is the official start of the yearly Pink Ribbon campaign by Swedish organisation Cancerfonden. In 2017, a total amount of SEK 532,000 kronor was collected to The Swedish Cancer Society and Swedish cancer research through the TCS Lidingöloppet Weekend.

When entering Pink Place, you contribute not only to your own health, but also to financing cancer research as the entire entry fee goes to The Swedish Cancer Society.

As a father, husband, son or friend, you can also show your support by running the race. In the mixed group, half the entry fee goes to The Swedish Cancer Society. Your committment and contribution matters.
