The first event was the CNCF Barracuda Paddlers Breast Cancer Awareness ‘Paddle for the Battle’ Breakfast and Raffle. The event was held on October 20, 2011 from 9am-12pm. Each guest was required to make a donation of 150 AED and in return they were able to experience going on a dragon boat, enjoyed a lovely breakfast and received a t-shirt for participating. Many raffle prizes were also drawn.
More than a thousand people attempted to break a world record during the Breast Cancer Arabia Guinness Book of World Records Largest Human Ribbon Attempt. The event’s goal was to try to create the biggest human formation of a breast cancer pink ribbon at Meydan. Despite being short on people for the actual record, spirits were high among supporters and breast cancer survivors for the time spent together raising awareness on the disease. Organized by Breast Cancer Arabia based in the UAE, the record attempt in Dubai needed more than the 3,952 people which helped secure the current record in Saudi Arabia last year.
Breast Cancer Arabia provides information for women on breast cancer and through its Breast Cancer Arabia Foundation, pays for treatment for those women with breast cancer who cannot afford treatment and provides online training courses for doctors and nurses who wish to become specialized in the treatment of breast cancer.
