Breast Cancer Race Near the Pyramids for Awareness of Breast Cancer Rising in Middle East
Saturday October 24th in Egypt saw a run for breast cancerÂ sponsored by Susan G. Koman.Â Hundreds and thousands of individuals participated in the event near the Great Pyramids at Giza.
Awareness of breast cancerÂ is improving in the middle east.Â This is largely due to the concern of an increasing number of women fighting breast cancer.
Teams of students, workers, Egyptians, and foreigners have formed for this race. Over 10 specific and separate countries from the middle east and Northern Africa will participate.
Several high ranking officials from Egypt were found enjoying the “First Race for Breast Cancer Foundation in Egypt“.Â “Runners and walkers alike will break the silence that surrounds breast cancer in Egypt, North Africa and the Middle East,” said Ambassador Nancy G. Brinker who is the founder of Susan G. Komen for the Cure and World Health Organization Goodwill Ambassador for Cancer Control.
