Join Us in the Fight Against Cancer

Launched in 2000, the Pink Pony Campaign is Ralph Lauren Corporation’s global initiative in the fight against cancer. Originally focused on breast cancer, the Pink Pony Campaign designated a pink version of the iconic Ralph Lauren Polo Pony as its symbol. Over time, the campaign has expanded its mission to reduce disparities in care across a wide range of cancers.

To ensure quality cancer care for underserved communities, the Pink Pony Campaign supports patient navigation programs. These services help guide patients through each stage of care—from screening and diagnosis to treatment and recovery. The Pink Pony Campaign is supported by personal donations, corporate partnerships, and Pink Pony product sales.

In the United States, through The Polo Ralph Lauren Foundation, the Pink Pony Fund provides grants to cancer centers and research organizations, including Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, the Nina Hyde Center for Breast Cancer Research, the Moses H. Cone Memorial Hospital, the Harold P. Freeman Patient Navigation Institute, the University of Chicago Cancer Research Foundation, the Martin Luther King Jr. Outpatient Center, and the Ralph Lauren Center for Cancer Care.

Internationally, Pink Pony supports more than 20 cancer charities, including The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, La Asociación Española Contra El Cáncer, Fondation Gustave Roussy, Hong Kong Cancer Fund, the Japan Cancer Society, and Cancer Australia.

For the Autumn 2018 Pink Pony Campaign, we asked a group of individuals who have all been touched by cancer to share their stories

“I am so grateful to be part of the Pink Pony story and to show people they aren’t alone in their fight.”

—Bianca Muñiz, ovarian and breast cancer survivor

“The Pink Pony campaign is a celebration of being alive and thriving.”

—Will Lanier, colon cancer survivor
