We are thrilled to announce that this years IGNITE Pink is Punk raised an impressive 73,047 AED for Al Jalila Foundation in aid of Breast Cancer Awareness.
The event, held at Anantara the Palm Dubai Resort, brought together over 800 participants of all ages and fitness levels, who showed their support with many donning pink fancy dress and super-hero costumes to honour cancer patients and survivors.
IGNITE has been supporting Al Jalila foundation for the past 3 years, with this year’s event strengthening the partnership further.
“We are positively overwhelmed by the response we received today, having raised Dh73,000 – more than double the amount raised in 2017 – towards cancer research as well as the palliative care and support of patients. Members of the community, big and small, casual as well as serious athletes, showed that Dubai is a city that bands together to support a deserving cause. We are truly grateful and delighted to contribute to the vision of making Dubai the most active city in the world and hope to continue doing so for many years to come”, said Guillaume Mariole, Co-Founder and CEO of the IGNITE Group.
