Earlier today Dubai Ladies Club, which is a member of Dubai Women Establishment, officially launched a new initiative, entitled 'The Pink Difference', which will help raise vital funds for breast cancer research within the UAE. With the intention of offering ladies different choices in which to be involved, Dubai Ladies Club has organised a variety of events and promotions in October, specifically designed to suit the tastes of every woman.
On the occasion, Lamia Abdulaziz Khan, Director of Dubai Ladies Club said, "We are pleased to launch 'The Pink Difference' initiative which reflects Dubai Ladies Club's ongoing mission to provide all women in the UAE with the mental, physical and emotional support they need to lead vibrant and fulfilled lives. Similarly, The Pink Difference aims to inspire our members and guests to not only support this noble cause but also become more self aware about the symptoms in their own bodies. Awareness and research are crucial factors in the fight against this breast cancer; and together I am confident that we will succeed in our mission is to beat this disease."
There are three main ways to get involved:
Dubai Ladies Club has introduced a special 'Pink Membership' whereby the Club will provide a complimentary Club membership to a breast cancer survivor for every Annual Club Membership sign up during the month of October. Several recent studies have shown that exercise and eating right can not only prevent people from getting cancer but also keep cancer from recurring. Moreover, women who exercise after completing breast cancer treatment, tend to live longer and have less recurrence, according to recent evidence. Dubai Ladies Club's new Pink Membership will not only help prevent the occurrence of the disease in one's own life but also enable you to contribute to the continued health of a Breast Cancer survivor by simply becoming a Club Member and beginning your personal own journey towards fitness and wellbeing.
