Friends of Cancer Patient’s annual pan-UAE ride recognises the efforts made by all who attend in aid of breast cancer awareness and the drive towards defeating the disease through early detection
Sharjah, February 1, 2023: The Pink Caravan Ride (PCR), UAE's annual breast cancer awareness campaign, has announced its theme for 2023's ride: 'Powered by You.' This theme is a reflection of the power and energy that the Pink Caravan Ride derives from each and every person in the UAE community as it makes strides towards mass awareness while offering free breast cancer screenings in efforts to defeat the disease through early detection.
This year's theme “Powered by You” highlights the crucial role of community support in the campaign's yearly success and emphasises that without the energy and participation from the public, the message and cause would not be as impactful.
PCR is powered by the brave patients who are pylons of the community and stand strong in the light of their adversity, while valiantly committing themselves to their treatment plans. The organisations and partners that support the Pink Caravan Ride, like power stations giving energy to the cause, making it possible for the campaign to offer free screenings to the community.
The Pink Caravan Ride is also powered by its riders, volunteers and medical teams, who work tirelessly to make the campaign a success, charging forward to conquer cancer.
The Pink Caravan Ride (PCR) calls for the support and participation of the United Arab Emirates community in their annual breast cancer awareness campaign. Whether one chooses to participate as a rider, volunteer, or simply attend the event in support of the cause, PCR is urging all members of the UAE to make a concerted effort to raise awareness and aid in the fight against breast cancer.
