Bahrain’s iconic buildings lit up in pink for breast cancer awareness month

A number of Bahrain’s iconic buildings will be lit up in pink every night throughout October for breast cancer awareness.
The Manama skyline is set to be dotted with the brightly-coloured structures up until October 31.

Recognisable buildings including Bahrain’s Financial Harbour and the World Trade Centre are taking part, as are a number of hotels including the InterContinental Regency, the Diplomat Radisson Blu, the Elite Hospitality Group and The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain.

Mobile phone providers VIVA and Zain, and the Bahrain Islamic Bank will also be lit up.

The Bahrain Cancer Society (BCS) has organised the campaign as part of its seventh year of breast cancer awareness month activities.

The BCS hopes the series of events, which includes a walkathon on Friday October 25, will raise money for research and highlight the important of regularly checking.

Next weekend (Thursday October 17), The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain, will be hosting its annual pink island party with five percent of the profits going to the charity Think Pink Bahrain.

Jeremy Canivet, director of sales and marketing at The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain, said, “We are delighted to continue our support to local charity partner Think Pink Bahrain for the fifth consecutive year.

“Aligning with our corporate social responsibility Community Footprints program, these annual events not only showcase solidarity across the Kingdom, but most importantly our guests can enjoy unique experiences while supporting a global cause.”
