Event:
They're off and racing for breast cancer research
They'll be off and racing again, and raising funds for breast cancer research, on Saturday 12th April for the annual 7-Eleven Pink Ribbon Cup, one of the flagship events on the racing and social calendar during Melbourne's autumn racing season.

This year the event is celebrating its tenth anniversary. The inaugural Pink Ribbon Cup was held on 23 April 2005 at Caulfield Racecourse and has been held every year since, so far raising over $400,000 for the National Breast Cancer Foundation and contributing to four research scholarships. This year's The Pink Ribbon Cup will be funding the work of Melbourne scientist Dr Delphine Merino, who hopes to develop a better understanding of the spread of breast cancer, and help in the development of treatments that improve survival.
