Run for the Cure Foundation (RFTC) is a unique non-profit, working to raise awareness about breast cancer and affect social change at the individual level across Japan. Aided by the support of major corporations and organizations that are willing to donate time, money, goods, and energy to fulfill their mission of eradicating breast cancer in Japan, RFTC runs a variety of educational and awareness-building programs, including publishing a quarterly magazine in English and Japanese. Interns will gain hands-on experience in outreach and fundraising by supporting the Foundation’s annual events and ongoing educational programs. Outreach touches on early detection and screening, as well as survivor support and wellness.  Interns will learn about the different ways of dealing with the issue of breast cancer across cultures, due to the multicultural background of the team.
