Pink Walkathon-Dubai





I am running again or shall I say I will be walking? This time I will be walking with friends and some family members for a cause. We are participating the 3.6 km Pink Walkathon organized yearly by Burjuman Breast Cancer Awareness Programme - Safe & Sound since 1997.

"Safe and Sound campaign is one of the regions largest, most comprehensive breast cancer awareness programme. This year round program focuses on the key message of survival through early detection and treatment."



Yellow Bells is personally inviting all women in the UAE specially the Pinays to participate in the event. Registration is until 7:00 am on the 5th of November at the New Burjuman. Printed tees are given on registration and a cap will be given away on the day of the event. Registration fee is 50 AED only. This is non-profit, non competitive event and all funds raised through walk registration fees and donations will go towards raising further awareness for breast cancer and patient care. Fund usage is monitored by the UAE Red Crescent Society.
