The event saw approximately 1,600 participants from 95 nationalities, who filled the Zayed Sports City Stadium in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. 

Bringing the community together to raise awareness around the importance of regular screenings and preventative measures, the Pink Run was an exhilarating event for friends, families and colleagues.
