Aiming to increase awareness for the importance of women’s reproductive health, the association SVE za NJU ('All for Her') is once again organising a fundraising race at Zagreb’s Bundek park.

Taking place on May 11, the public health initiative 'To nisu samo ženske stvari' ('It’s not just women’s stuff') will offer participants two race distances – 800m and 4km – open to women, men, and children. All money raised will go to the association, which uses the funds for continuing its work, including covering expenses so that affected women can receive psychological support.

The run is part of a campaign inspired by World Ovarian Cancer Day (May 8), and the organisers have goals wider than simply raising funds. They aim to highlight the importance of regular health check-ups in promoting the crucial role that prevention plays in beating the disease, as well as challenging the idea that the issue is something that only impacts women.

In their call for participants, the organisers expressed their desire to see men run the race as their support is important, both in mainstreaming the public health campaign and in practice, where emotional support for women impacted by the diagnosis can go a long way.

Where: Bundek park, Zagreb
When: Saturday, May 11, from 10am
