Kentucky Oaks Survivors Parade

Announcement of 142 Survivor Parade Participants Below!

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.

Kentucky Oaks fans were invited to nominate themselves, a relative, or a friend who has survived breast and/or ovarian cancer by sharing their survivor's battle story. Fans were encouraged to share their survivor's story to build awareness, to help select the nominees they wish to champion this cause on Kentucky Oaks day, and to make a donation to our charitable partner Bright Pink, on behalf of their favorite nominee to support early detection & prevention.

Thank you to all of you who participated in our nomination and selection process. We encourage all fans to continue to support our charitable partner Bright Pink. Donations will be accepted through May 8th, 2016

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
