PinkRun.HK (formerly known as Pink Heels Race) is an annual charitable event organized by Hong Kong Hereditary Breast Cancer Family Registry (named as ‘The Registry’ in the below) It aims to promote knowledge and risk awareness of hereditary breast, ovarian and prostate cancers caused by BRCA gene mutation, and also to raise fund for supporting the underserved high-risk families by undergoing BRCA testing and genetic counseling services in the community.
Pink 5K Run has been held for the third year already, the route of Pink 5K Run is with narrow steps, uphills and downhills path, and even stairs; symbolizes the path face by the cancer patients and their families is also full of difficulties and challenges. However, such tough and painful route could be overcome with the support of the community.
Pink Family 1K Run is a newly-added race event in 2018, through this fun-filled parent-kid running activity, aiming to enhance knowledge and arouse the awareness of hereditary breast, ovarian and prostate cancers caused by BRCA gene mutation in families; also to inject some positive energy to the patients and their family members.
Pink Heels Race is one of the iconic races of The Registry. Apart from those typical OL always in high heels joining this race, there were even muscular men showing their elegant side, and also the happy & sweet family team. All of them enjoyed the race a lot and had lots of fun!
Established in 2007, Hong Kong Hereditary Breast Cancer Family Registry is the only and first-ever charitable organization dedicated to help the high-risk families who have hereditary risk of breast, ovarian and prostate cancer due to BRCA gene mutations. We also aim to advance and standardize clinical care by formulating preventative measures through data collection, research, public education, counseling and supportive care services in reducing the incidence of hereditary cancers in Chinese population. The Registry now has the largest database and biobank of hereditary breast cancers specimens in Chinese which would facilitate better understanding research of the disease locally and worldwide. The Registry has raised funds for financing the underserved high-risk families in the community to undergo genetic testing and counseling and has benefited over 2,000 families up to now.
