Kentucky Oaks Survivors Parade
For the eighth year, the Survivors Parade presented by Kroger will take place on Kentucky Oaks Day, Friday, May 6th, 2016! The Survivors Parade is a march of breast and ovarian cancer survivors, which takes place on Churchill Downs’ historic racetrack. 142 breast and ovarian cancer survivors will walk in the parade directly prior to the 142nd running of the Longines Kentucky Oaks race.
Beginning Tuesday, February 16th, Kentucky Oaks fans will have the opportunity to nominate themselves or someone they know who has battled, or is battling, breast or ovarian cancer. Fans are encouraged to share their survivor's story, so that family, friends, and Kentucky Oaks fans across the country can select the nominee they wish to champion this cause on Kentucky Oaks Day, and make a donation to Bright Pink on behalf of their favorite nominee. Your participation and your donations will help to educate, support and empower young women nationwide in prevention of breast and ovarian cancer.
2016 Survivors Will Receive:
- Two (2) free reserved seats to the Kentucky Oaks courtesy of Churchill Downs
- The opportunity to walk the historic Churchill Downs racetrack with fellow survivors, just before the 142nd running of the Kentucky Oaks
