Spectrum goes PINK for Breast Cancer Awareness
As many of you will know, the month of October is synonymous with Breast Cancer awareness. Breast cancer accounts for over 22% of all cancers in women and has a huge impact throughout the world. Raising awareness for Breast Cancer is a very important cause within the Spectrum family and as such, we wanted to make sure we get involved.
We not only wanted to raise awareness for Breast Cancer, but we also wanted to raise some money for a local charity. As a result, we decided to hold a “Spectrum goes PINK” day for the Breast Cancer Arabia™ Foundation. Staff contributed donations to dress up in their finest PINK attire at the office and we were able to raise over AED 1,000 for the charity. The Breast Cancer Arabia™ Foundation was set up with the primary objective of providing financial assistance to women, (in the UAE) diagnosed with breast cancer who are unable to afford their breast cancer surgery and treatment costs. If you would like to find out more about the Breast Cancer Arabia™ Foundation, you can visit their website here.
We would like to thank our staff and everyone who contributed to this great cause and We’re sure the money will be put to good use by the charity.
