The Play for P.I.N.K. Challenge of the Americas Award to Fund Breast Cancer Research

COTA was thrilled to be honored with the naming of The Play for P.I.N.K. Challenge of the Americas Award by the Breast Cancer Research Foundation in conjunction with Play for P.I.N.K. This distinction was given following the 2023 Challenge of the Americas, our most successful fundraiser to date. The inaugural grant was presented to Dr. Benita Katzenellenbogen from the University of Illinois, whose groundbreaking research focuses on metastasis, treatment and tumor biology.

Let’s continue to challenge breast cancer together!

Introducing Dr. Benita Katzenellenbogen:

The Challenge Beneficiary

Breast cancer is a complex disease with no simple solution. Research is the key to stopping it in its tracks. Founded in 1993 by Evelyn H. Lauder, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation is the largest private funder of breast cancer research in the world. We invest in the best minds in science—from those investigating prevention to metastasis—and foster cross-disciplinary collaboration. Our approach accelerates the entire field and moves us closer to the answers we urgently need. We can’t stop now. Join us in fueling the world’s most promising research. With you, we will be the end of breast cancer. Learn more and get involved at BCRF.org.

Play for P.I.N.K. (Prevention, Immediate diagnosis, New technology, Knowledge), or PFP, is a 501(c)(3) grassroots organization dedicated to raising funds for breast cancer research through sporting and lifestyle events.  PFP’s commitment is to contribute 100% of all proceeds to its sole beneficiary, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), to fund the world’s top researchers. PFP donated $5.75 million to BCRF in 2023 and is currently supporting 20 research projects.  Since 1996, PFP has raised more than $80 million for breast cancer research.
