Charity at the KoRo Women's Race:

Full on women's power & team spirit in the fight against cancer

Almost every second woman develops cancer in the course of her life. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women. Showing solidarity with all those affected is a matter close to our hearts at the KoRo Women's Race! And that is why one euro per registration goes as a donation to the hardship fund of the Berliner Krebsgesellschaft e.V., our long-term charity partner. The more women who register, the greater the sum! All donations will go 100 percent to women in financial need who have been affected by cancer.


Charity Teams: Achieving more together!

With a charity team, you can support women affected by cancer in Berlin beyond your own participation in the run. In a team with friends, colleagues or family members, you can collect donations from your networks and contribute to raising even more money at the KoRo Women's Race! Once again, 100 percent of all donations will go to women in financial need who are affected by cancer.

Whether in pairs or in a large group—anything is possible

You can create a team with just two participants. You don't have to start in the same discipline or in the same distance—you can each decide individually. It also doesn't matter whether you participate in person or virtually.

It's as simple as this:

  1. Register individually for the KoRo Women's Race Berlin (live or virtual).
  2. Create a donation page on the website of the Berlin Cancer Society.
  3. Motivate your friends, family, colleagues & co. to donate for your team. Simply share the link to your team page via e-mail, social media, etc.

The Hardship Fund of the Berliner Krebsgesellschaft e.V. (Berlin Cancer Society)

The Berliner Krebsgesellschaft e.V. has been our charity partner at the KoRo Women's Race Berlin for many years. The non-profit association is committed to the well-being of cancer patients and their relatives by providing advice, information and further support.

With the Hardship Fund, the Berliner Krebsgesellschaft e.V. offers direct financial assistance. And this is currently more important than ever, in times when many things are becoming more expensive. For women in particular, the feeling of loss of control and worries about their own health are often compounded by financial hardship, especially if they are no longer able to work. Direct financial assistance is available, for example, for new clothes after weight loss, medication or childcare. The hardship fund is financed 100 percent by donations.

Collecting donations at the KoRo Women's Race Berlin—helpful tips!

Have you founded a charity team and hope to gather as much money as possible? Some women have shared that they initially found it difficult to approach people around them. But that usually goes away quickly with the first successes. Ralf Wagner from the Berliner Krebsgesellschaft e.V. has a few helpful tips and suggestions for fundraising that will help you get started.

  1. Spread the link to the donation page
    Whether by email, social media, Messenger & Co.—share the link to your fundraising page with friends and family. Always include your team name, as due to technical reasons the link on Facebook and Instagram always redirects to the overview page of all teams.
  2. Inspire your colleagues and superiors
    Use the next (online) meeting or a circular email to get your colleagues on board. When employees are active in sports, their superiors usually get excited too—especially if it's for a good cause.
  3. Tell your personal story
    What motivated you to start a charity team? Tell the people around you why you are working together for women with cancer. This moves and motivates people to donate to the good cause.
  4. Flea markets & co.
    Spring is the perfect time to clean out your home. You can sell things you no longer need at a flea market or by placing a classified ad. Inform those interested that the proceeds are going to the Berliner Krebsgesellschaft e.V.—the buyers might even be willing to pay a higher price.
  5. Every euro counts
    Even small donations can make a big difference for those affected, especially in times when many things are becoming more expensive. And not everyone is in a position to donate a lot. Let those around you know that even a few euros can make a difference.
