About Us

Pink Rocks the Runway™ is an annual breast cancer awareness fashion event that combines couture fashion and live rock music with an important early detection message. The show is headlined by celebrity designer Christian Siriano. In addition, the evening celebrates and features breast cancer survivors under 40 with a pink couture gown fashion show.  There are sure to be some surprises!

PRR is a project hosted by and in support of Pink Jams! Working to promote breast cancer awareness to men and women under the age of 40, Pink Jams! works to eradicate the misconception that awareness, self-exam, and mammograms should begin at 40.  Learn more about Pink Jams!

At the conclusion of the event, Pink Jams! will provide a special grant to the Capital Breast Care Center in support of their important work. The Capital Breast Care Center, chosen as the 2011 community grant recipient, works to provide women in the Washington, DC area with mammograms and health screenings regardless of their ability to pay. Currently, the CBCC is diagnosing breast cancer at two times the national rate.
