Run for Cancer this weekend on Al Maryah Island, presented by Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi

Cancer Run, presented by Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, will take place at Al Maryah Island, from 6-10 a.m. on February 4, 2024. With the event being open to the community, participants of different ages are encouraged to join the cause and run in support of families and friends.

The annual event aims to raise awareness about various types of cancer risk and highlight the importance of healthy lifestyle choices for cancer prevention and management.

You'll have the option to participate in three run categories, with distances of 1-3 km, 5km, and 10km. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three finishers in the 5km and 10km runs. The first-place winner in the 5km run will receive AED 2,000, the second-place winner will receive AED 1,500, and the third-place winner will receive AED 1,000. Similarly, the top three finishers in the 10km run will be awarded AED 3,000, AED 2,000, and AED 1,000, respectively.

In addition to these competitive categories, there will be eight other classifications for you to choose from, with each supporting various causes. Dedicated colour shirts will represent different types of cancer, including breast cancer, lung cancer, colorectal cancer, melanoma, bladder and prostate cancer, leukaemia, and pancreatic cancer.

There'll also be health awareness booths and engaging activities and provide an opportunity for you to connect with healthcare professionals, reinforcing the need for regular screenings and health checks toward cancer prevention and treatment.
