Pink is Punk breast cancer event returns to Dubai

Fundraising event IGNITE Pink is Punk is coming to Dubai on Friday October 5.

Taking place at Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort, the run raises awareness and funds with 100 percent of proceeds going to support Brest Friends in association with Al Jalila Foundation.

The fundraiser’s new format for its seventh consecutive year features a more inclusive programme, which aims to involve as many participants as possible, with a 3km fun run in addition to the original, and a swimming event taking place.

“In seven short years, and thanks to the wonderful support of the Dubai community, IGNITE Pink is Punk has grown from a small grassroots event to what is now a festival of fun, fitness and fundraising – all in support of a truly great cause,” says Guillaume Mariole, co-founder and CEO of IGNITE Group.

The run is open to participants of all ages, with many dressing up in pink fancy dress and superhero costumes to show their support, with a wide variety of spot prizes up for grabs.

There are two junior categories for young participants aged 12 years old and under, and 16 years old and under.

For couch potatoes, or anyone who would just prefer to watch, attendance is free of charge.

Spectators can contribute with Dhs150 and get a dry fit top and goodie bag, too.

Those who are seeking some relaxation, preferably after taking part the run, can also take part in the Pink Moonlight Yoga event on Monday October 5.

Registration is now open for Pink is Punk, so get your fuchsia gear ready and dash for a cause.
Dhs70 (juniors), Dhs150 (adults), Dhs250 (teams). October 5, 6am. Anantara The Palm Resort & Spa, Palm Jumeirah,
