Thumbs up for Think-Pink
Just go with it!’. Fast Forward took this to heart. Because both in Brussels and Antwerp we supported Think-Pink for the Race for the Cure. The winner? The fight against breast cancer. The loser? The absentees of course.
Think-Pink is an organisation with the very noble ambition to eradicate breast cancer. A Race for the Cure is organised every year: to raise awareness and guarantee people a pleasant activity. Naturally, Fast Forward wants to be a part of this deserving project.
In Brussels, the Race for the Cure went through the Bois de la Cambre. 5,233 participants in all showed up to run 6 kilometres or walk 3 kilometres. For the kids there was an 800 metre course. The group runs in particular were a huge success – groups from 10 people were able to sign up, which they did en masse.
Participants were given more than a run, in the sense that the run is conceived as a total event: there was a demanding zumba warm-up, apero and tapas for after, massages for fellow sufferers (who conquered breast cancer) and a sponsor village with the necessary ambiance and information about breast cancer. In short, the run was a success from start to finish!
Idem ditto for Antwerp: 6,012 runners found their way to the Zuiderdokken. More so, they stayed longer than they did in Brussels, because of the lovely weather – which of course Fast Forward also arranged. :)
The presentation of the run was in the hands of Virginie Claes, who cut the 100th ponytail for the Beautiful Lengths Fund. A nice extra touch!
In short, about the running events: Thumbs up for Think-Pink!
