More than 10,000 nationwide free check ups since January 20, as PCR propels to new success in cancer awareness

Sharjah, February 7, 2023:  The 11th Pink Caravan Ride (PCR) returned to its base headquarters in Sharjah on Monday, offering complimentary screenings and raising community awareness on breast cancer and the importance of regular screening. The nationwide campaign delivered 10,492 free check-ups across the UAE since January 20, made possible through the unwavering support of volunteers and institutional partners who generously devoted their efforts and resources to support the campaign's overarching goal – the community's well-being.

Since its inception, the success of the volunteer-based campaign organised by the Friends Of Cancer Patients (FOCP) has garnered increasing support from both the private and public sectors who believe in the PCR's noble mission focused on ensuring communities' sustainability through advocating a healthy lifestyle and raised awareness on the importance of early detection to tackle the disease at early stages to ensure a full recovery.

On Day 3 of the pan-UAE trek, the pink brigade was welcomed again in Sharjah with raised flags and cheers by citizens and residents throughout the day. The equestrians started the day's awareness activities by acknowledging the unwavering support of its partners, with horseriders saddling up at BEEAH Group's state-of-the-art headquarters and making their way towards Sharjah Media City (SHAMS).

The pink brigade also trekked from Sharjah Broadcasting Authority towards Al Jada and made their way to Sharjah Research Technology and Innovation Park, concluding the day of campaigning at the University Hospital.

The Pink Caravan Mammogram Unit offered mammograms and other medical services at the Sharjah Broadcasting Authority headquarters, alongside temporary walk-in clinics set up at the Air Arabia A-One building, Sharjah and Al Qasimiya University, Sharjah. The PCR fixed clinics in the emirate will be accessible until February 10 at the Al Majaz Waterfront, Mega Mall, Lulu Hypermarket Al Butina, and Lulu Central Sharjah.
