Sharjah: The Higher Organizing Committee of the Pink Caravan Ride (PCR), the annual breast cancer awareness program, is calling on all horse riders interested in joining their 11th yearly nationwide ride, to register for participation.
The ride will begin on 4th February 2023 which is World Cancer Day and end on 10th February 2023 travelling across all seven emirates in an effort to raise awareness for breast cancer. The committee cited that the yearly gathering of the public and communities across the country, alongside the participation of horse riders all over the nation, made the pan-UAE campaign conducted by Sharjah-based civil society organization Friends Of Cancer Patients (FOCP) a huge success over the past years, and an enjoyable and important event that was a highlight on the calendar.
The committee added that the yearly ride was a true example of how all segments of society, including government bodies and institutions, can come together to raise awareness of the importance of early detection, help to combat cancer and promote a healthy lifestyle for all.
All riders who want to volunteer for the team must be older than 16 and have the necessary equestrian knowledge and experience. Riders must pass technical and competency exams to prove their fitness to participate, as the seven-day journey around the country spans about 20 KM every day.
The event is open to both male and female riders, and those interested in participating in the eleventh edition of the Pink Caravan Ride, need to register online on the website and be part of 100 horse riders who will ride across the seven emirates.
