Abu Dhabi, 29/09/2015 – In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, on October 16th, the Khalidiya Palace Rayhaan by Rotana turns Pink for an afternoon Pilate’s class and more fun activities. Join us in supporting this great cause, have fun, learn, and raise funds for the breast cancer community. This event is in collaboration with Hairwaves by Charbel, L’Oréal and Brightpoint Royal Women’s Hospital.


The Pilates session will be conducted by Taghrid Khoury, a certified Pilate’s instructor for 10 years now. She is very dedicated to this cause, and in her own words:


“I do it to encourage the ladies to have mammography and do self-checks. We want to change the view that breast cancer is a death sentence, life goes on, and those who conquer breast cancer live LIFE more fully because they value it and appreciate every moment. Getting diagnosed early is key to conquering cancer and hence the importance of mammography and self-checks.”


Also, on this National Mammography Day, Khalidiya Palace Rayhaan by Rotana in collaboration with Brightpoint Royal Women’s Hospital will host a specialized technician who will talk about the importance of mammography and give instructions on self-checks.


All of the proceeds from this event will go to the breast cancer support group in Abu Dhabi the Bosom Buddies.


Not experienced in Pilates? Not a problem! Classes are open to all levels and no previous experience is required!
