On Saturday October 10, BIG against breast cancer will organise the very first BIG-athlon in the beautiful surroundings of the tri-border area in Ouren (Belgium).

Since founding BIG in 1999, 15 years have passed. 15 years of collaboration to move breast cancer research forward while reducing duplication of effort. Moving more globally, more rapidly and more innovatively towards better treatments and finding cures. Find out more in BIG's Annual Report 2014 now available online.
Through its member groups and their extended network of hospitals and investigators, BIG designs and conducts clinical trials and programmes that represent the next generation of breast cancer research. BIG members aim to change clinical practice to better serve patients worldwide.
Several of BIG’s trials are considered to be landmark, introducing particularly innovative designs, contributing to significant breakthroughs, or paving the way towards more personalised treatment of the disease.
Finding a cure for breast cancer is one of the biggest challenges faced by researchers from around the world.
Significant progress has been made to improve both the chances of survival and the quality of life of women affected by the disease. However, breast cancer remains the second most common cancer in the world and is still responsible for too many deaths annually.
By bringing together the top breast cancer experts from around the world to conduct innovative research, BIG has the global reach and expertise required to find a cure. We need to support such critical research to give hope to women affected by this devastating disease, and their families.
