Childhood cancer awareness campaign launches in Bahrain

There will be a number of walkathons to raise money for cancer charities this month

Childhood cancer awareness campaign launches in Bahrain

Bahrain will be taking part in childhood cancer awareness month once again this year.

The Kids R Golden project, run by the Future Youth Association, will see golden ribbons, the symbol for the fight against childhood cancer, and flyers distributed at health centres.

Fifteen companies supporting this year’s campaign, which is the sixth in the Kingdom, will organise events such as walkathons to raise cash for the charity which supports 135 children.

It will also see organisations set up childhood cancer awareness pavilions within their buildings and in public spaces.

Childhood cancer awareness month takes place across the globe every year in September, but the Future Youth Association timed the launch of the campaign to coincide with the start of the school year.

It is hoped the month of events, which will finish on October 15, will help parents understand which symptoms could require medical attention.

Keep following Time Out Bahrain for all the updates on the events as they're announced.
