It’s the month to think pink
October is breast-cancer awareness month, and will see the country colour up in support of Pinktober. Here’s a round-up of our favourite events that will be contributing to a great cause.
Wear pink, and hit the Eastern Mangroves in a kayak with the annual Pink Paddle on October 21. Dhs100 of each Dhs160 entry fee is donated to local group, Bosom Buddies. There’s a prize for the ‘pinkest’ person on the paddle. Email email@example.com
