It will be a special race through which donations will be collected to help women in Romania have access to investigations and treatments to prevent and fight breast and cervical cancer.
Romania thus joins the 32 European countries in the international charity event “Race for the Cure”, now in its eighth edition, which resumes this year in physical format.
Also, the 2022 edition is held under the auspices of the Presidential Administration, the Patronage of the Italian Embassy in Bucharest and has as institutional partners the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Education, the Romanian Olympic and Sports Committee, the Romanian Athletics Federation.
In the days leading up to the event on June 5, the co-founder and president of the Superbet Foundation, Augusta Dragic, a surgeon, wanted to share the specialist’s perspective on the importance of regular medical check-ups.
“For the third consecutive year, we support the Campaigns dedicated to Women’s Health. Screening can prevent thousands of cancer deaths. We now have modern mammography programs that can reduce breast cancer mortality by more than 40%, according to current statistics. In fact, the more than 50% decrease in the incidence and mortality of cervical cancer in the last 3 decades is largely due to screening with the Pap test. There are only a few numbers that I mention to remind you what we all know – good guard, prevention in this case, passes the bad danger”, Dragic commented.
For his part, Mr. Dr. Marius Geantă, the president of InoMed – Center for Innovation in Medicine, spoke to us about personalized prevention and how people with influence in social media and, in general, with notoriety in the public space, can keep their healthy online communities.
In addition to attending the physical race in Bucharest, residents from other cities or the diaspora can support and donate to Romanian women for the prevention and fight against breast and cervical cancer, through the European platform. Registrations and donations for Romania can also be made on the website. One registration in the race is 50 lei and will turn into a Babes-Pap test, and 4 registrations will be equivalent to a mammogram.
