PoreLab participated for the second time to the Pink Ribbon Run this year.

What is the Pink Ribbon Run?

The Pink Ribbon is an international symbol of breast cancer awareness.

The Pink Ribbon Run is a fun, family event that helps increase awareness of early detection for breast cancer. It also celebrates those in our community who have bravely fought and survived this disease and helps raise funds to help local patients in their battle against this disease with the latest advancements in treatment and detection.

About the run in Trondheim this year

Trondheim, like many towns around the world, organize a yearly race to support the action. Due to Corona, the Pink Ribbon Run was organized “virtually” during the fall 2020. The restrictions were finally lifted during the fall 2021 and the Pink Ribbon Run could be organised  What does it mean?
It means that participants could run when they wanted (between 4 and 11 October) and registered their time themselves.The distances remained the same: 3 and 6 km. The Pink Ribbon Run is a fun, family event and all can participate.

Why a participation from PoreLab? 

At PoreLab we work on improving cancer therapy, therefore having a PoreLab-team at the Pink Ribbon Run is spot-on! We work on optimizing focused ultrasound to improve the delivery of drugs and nanoparticles carriers throughout the tumour interstitium.

PoreLab sponsored the registration for all participants from PoreLab.
