The Pink Run, pink being the colour associated with breast cancer worldwide, is the primary fund raiser for Jamaica Reach to Recovery. All funds raised will provide lifesaving breast cancer treatments to help ease the high cost of diagnosis and treatment, which is out of reach for most Jamaican women. The Jamaica Reach to Recovery is an affiliate of the Jamaica Cancer Society and is staffed by a resilient group of volunteers, all whom are breast cancer survivors, whose sole purpose is to provide emotional, psychological and financial support as well as information and counselling to breast cancer survivors, and by extension their family and friends. In 2015, ICWI took the decision to support to the breast cancer survivor community in the countries where they operate. In Jamaica, the Pink Run 5K was selected because it is a pivotal annual event worthy of full support as the Title Sponsor. Since then, the event was renamed the ICWI Pink Run.
