Pink Week is a week of events aimed at raising funds and awareness for Breast Cancer charities. Inspired by the activism of the late Dina Rabinovitch, Pink Week ran for the first time in Haberdashers’ Aske’s school in 2011. Since then, Pink Week has gone from strength to strength, launching at Clare College, Cambridge in 2014. This year, Pink Week will be Cambridge wide, with over fifty representatives spread out across the Cambridge Colleges.
Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in the UK. Around 50,000 women and around 350 men are diagnosed with breast cancer each year yet more people are surviving ever before. Through spreading awareness of this disease and encouraging early detection, organisations such as Pink Week bring us that much closer to ending breast cancer forever.
We thank you for joining us in our mission and look forward to celebrating Cambridge Pink Week 2021 with you!
