ABOUT PLAY FOR P.I.N.K.

We help 25,000 people a year turn their passion for play into lifesaving advances in breast cancer research. Play for P.I.N.K. (Prevention, Immediate diagnosis, New technology, Knowledge) supports volunteers organizing sporting and lifestyle events (mainly golf and tennis tournaments held at country clubs) to benefit our sole beneficiary, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Thanks to underwriting from The Estée Lauder Companies’ Breast Cancer Campaign, PFP donates 100% of all proceeds to BCRF to fund the world’s leading researchers. Last year, over 250 events were organized by volunteers across 30 states to benefit PFP, which currently supports 16 BCRF-funded research projects.

Last year, Play for P.I.N.K. donated $4 million to BCRF bringing its cumulative total to nearly $70 million to fund breast cancer research that is saving lives, improving outcomes and uncovering new approaches to this challenging disease.

 

ABOUT BCRF

Breast cancer is a complex disease with no simple solution. Every diagnosis is unique and puts lives at risk. We must stop breast cancer in its tracks, and research is the answer.

Founded in 1993 by Evelyn H. Lauder, BCRF is the largest private funder of breast cancer research in the world. We invest in a wide range of research—from prevention, diagnosis, treatment, survivorship, and metastasis—because each area of investigation informs another, propelling us toward the solutions we urgently need.

We convene and connect the best minds in science—giving them the opportunity to pursue their most innovative ideas. Our combination of investment and cross-disciplinary collaboration accelerates the entire field and builds momentum for new discoveries. BCRF-funded investigators have been behind every major breakthrough in breast cancer research, and the field is moving faster than ever. We can’t stop now.

With you, and the entire BCRF community, we are fueling the world’s most promising research. Join us—together, we will bring the end of breast cancer into focus. Learn more and get involved at BCRF.org.
