Here are our top picks on events to donate and create awareness about breast cancer in the UAE
1. Think Pink Coffee Morning
Spend a morning learning all you can about breast cancer, and how to try and prevent it. Organised as a coffee morning, you can get advice on how to detect symptoms early, take up free exercise classes or donate to the cause of awareness. Leave with a wealth of life-saving information and goodie bags.

2. Take a walk
Want to get healthy and donate to the cause of breast cancer awareness at the same time? Download the Safe and Sound App by BurJuman and track your walks on there. You can also donate directly to the Al Jalila Foundation through its payment gateway. When the kilomteres tracked by users gets to a certain limit (50,000km was the limit for the 2015 campaign), Burjuman donates a lump sum of money to the foundation towards the cause (Dh100,000 was paid out in February this year). Walk the talk ladies!
3. Black Burger turns Pink
The Black Burger at Gramercy has been turned pink in support of the breast cancer awareness cause. While you are at trying that out, enjoy premium selections of beverages and traditional comfort food with a modern twist.
