For the 12th year, the Survivors Parade presented by Kroger will take place on Kentucky Oaks Day, Friday, September 4th, 2020! The Survivors Parade is a march of breast and ovarian cancer survivors, which takes place on Churchill Downs’ historic racetrack. 146 breast and ovarian cancer survivors will walk in the parade prior to the 146th running of the Longines Kentucky Oaks race.

Kentucky Oaks fans will be invited to nominate themselves, a relative, or a friend who has survived breast and/or ovarian cancer by sharing their survivor's battle story. Once a nominee is submitted and approved, voting for this nominee may begin. Fans are encouraged to share their survivor's story with their coworkers, family and friends to build awareness.

During this time period, select the nominee to champion this cause on Kentucky Oaks day, and make a donation to our charitable partner Derby Divas and the Norton Cancer Institute Breast Health Program, on behalf of your favorite nominee. Your participation and your donations will help to support early detection, prevention and treatment.

We request that you nominate someone who has not had the opportunity to walk in the Survivors Parade so that as many survivors as possible have the chance to champion breast and ovarian health at the Longines Kentucky Oaks.


The 146 survivors selected 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, prior to the 146th running of the Kentucky Oaks
