COSTA RICA NEWS — Staring at 8:00AM, more than 5.000 took the main streets of San José Sunday morning, with a message of solidarity, the prevention and fight to find a cure for breast cancer, in the 11th edition of the Ross Foundation event.

In Costa Rica, breast cancer is the second most common cancer among women – after skin cancer – and more deadly.

Cancer patients and survivors, family, friends and those concerned with the disease covered Paseo Colón in pink.

“It’s a message of support and solidarity to all those women who fight breast cancer every day and their families. Also a message of prevention, as with healthy habits we can lower the risk of getting it,” said First Lady, Mercedes Peña, who was chosen as grand marshal of the event.

Every year, about 1.000 Costa Rican women get the news of having breast cancer, and about 400 die from it.
