More than 100 participate in the 6 km run to mark their support to the campaign.
Dubai, 21 October 2014: TribeFit, Dubai Marina’s largest & most happening Fitness & Social Club, organized a large fun run in support of the Breast Cancer Arabia Campaign. The 6 km run was a grand success with more than 105 runners taking part in a strong show of support to the campaign.
Every year, thousands of people around the world are diagnosed with Breast Cancer, and sadly many of them have lost their battle against this killer ailment.
Therefore, it is very important to increase the awareness about this silent killer and reduce the number of fatalities. The “Breast Cancer Awareness Arabia” campaign is striving to do this across the region.
Apart from the fun run, TribeFit had an entire week of activities planned to spread awareness about this campaign amongst members and the community, finally culminating in the 6 km run around the Dubai Marina neighborhood. TribeFit raised AED 5230 which will be donated to Breast Cancer Arabia.
Ajay Mankani, Big Chief and founder of TribeFit said, “We have always been at the forefront in extending our support to charities and social causes, and this is our second event to spread awareness about breast cancer 2014, the last one being a Body Combat Marathon we did in April this year. It was very heartening to see such a strong turnout for the run despite it being on a Friday morning, and it makes us feel proud and happy to be a part of such a caring and contributing community.”
