Pink Heels Race (formerly known as Race with Pink Heels) is an annual charitable event organized by Hong Kong Hereditary Breast Cancer Family Registry. 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 is a newly launched event to attract more participants. The route of Pink 5K Run with uphills and downhills path, stairs and narrow steps symbolizes the difficulties and challenges faced by the cancer patients and their families. However, such tough and painful route could be overcome with the support of the community.
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.
