In memory of my aunt Sumera who passed on after a tough battle with Cancer, I will be running 30 half marathons in 30 days to support the fight against Breast Cancer. I will run these 30 half marathons during the Dubai Fitness Challenge from October 29, 2021, to Nov 27 2021.
Pink Caravan aims to raise awareness around breast cancer early detection and screening methods, lobby for the creation of the first UAE National Cancer Registry, and raise sufficient funds to support breast cancer patients.
