In light of Breast Cancer Awareness month this October, there are several events across the UAE marking the important cause to raise awareness.

With a percentage of the proceeds going to Al Jalila Foundation, every entity is contributing to the cause. In partnership with Brest Friends, the foundation is raising awareness on the importance of early detection of breast cancer.

As the UAE always plays a key role in raising awareness for this matter, Emirates Woman highlights how you can play your part too.

Stay at Lapita Dubai Parks and Resorts

To celebrate ‘Pinktober’ this month, Dubai’s only Polynesian-inspired resort will support the Al Jalila Foundation with 50 per cent of its proceeds donated towards breast cancer research and treatment in the UAE.

Each Twin and King room is priced at Dhs1,100 by using the promo code ES7. For this price guests will be offered breakfast, a special 60-minute ‘Pinktober’ themed full body massage at Ola Spa and complimentary daily access to Dubai Parks and Resorts, the region’s leading theme park destination.
