Launched to mark this year’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, civil society organisations across the globe hold activities to promote breast cancer awareness among women and the wider community and raise funds for breast cancer medical research.

Registration is free and can be done through our website: www.lifeinaspire.qa. Female residents of Qatar of all ages are encouraged to participate in the event on Saturday, October 28th, 4-6 pm, at Aspire Park, behind Sugar & Spice restaurant.

“We aim to engage with women at all ages in Qatar to raise their awareness of this serious disease, which causes millions of fatalities across all countries of the world. Raising awareness is a crucial first step in fighting the disease as early detection can increase the success rate of treatment,” said Al Anoud al-Misnad, Acting Head of Events at AZF.

The event will include a breast cancer awareness seminar presented by the Qatar Cancer Society, a photo opportunity in which attendees will form a ‘Human Ribbon’ , followed by a 1 to 2 kilometer walk around Aspire Park.
