Established in 2011, Pink Ribbon Monaco holds a special place in the hearts of many, being the pioneer association in the region to illuminate buildings in pink during breast cancer awareness month.
Under the leadership of Natasha Frost-Savio, the organization is dedicated to early detection and awareness, organizing impactful events like the Pink Ribbon Walk in February and the annual Pink Lights in October.
These events serve as powerful messages of support, urging early screening and striving to save lives. As a member of the Committee for the Protection and Promotion of Women’s Rights (DFM), Pink Ribbon Monaco actively works towards enhancing gender equality. Collaborating with key entities like the Princely government, National Council, Ministry of Health, and Princess Grace Hospital, the association has been a steadfast advocate for awareness, health, and unity for over a decade.
Excitingly, Pink Ribbon Monaco proudly announces that Her Serene Highness Princess Charlene has embraced the role of Honorary President. This endorsement solidifies her dedication to women’s health and the fight against breast cancer, aligning seamlessly with the values of the Principality's most prominent association dedicated to the cause.
Princess Charlene’s role as Honorary President will play a crucial part in advancing Pink Ribbon Monaco’s mission of raising awareness and funds for breast cancer research and prevention. This announcement gains significance just weeks before the highly anticipated fundraising gala and auction at the prestigious Monte Carlo Casino.
The timing coincides with the beloved 12th annual Pink Ribbon Monaco Walk at Port Hercules, in partnership with the Monaco Run, on Sunday, February 11th. This event continues to symbolize community support for those affected by breast cancer.
Natasha Frost-Savio, President and Founder of Pink Ribbon Monaco, expressed her gratitude, stating, “HSH Princess Charlene’s involvement as our Honorary President adds immeasurable strength to our cause. We are honored to have her support as we approach these significant events, and her commitment reinforces our wish to encourage critical research and support our local community.”
