Pink Ribbon Guinness World Record

Event Date: 
October 28, 2010 - 05:00 - 08:00

On October 28th, women across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will descend on Jeddah to form the largest ever breast cancer Human chain in the shape of Pink Ribbon. HRH Princess Reema Bint Bandar, Al Bidaya Center and the Zahra Breast Cancer Association aim to increase awareness on breast cancer and let women and families affected by this disease know that they are not alone.

The organizers are expecting to engrave this event in the Guinness book of World Records.

The largest human pink ribbon chain in the region was recorded in 2008 in the UAE in which 1,032 women and their families participated. Though this was not recorded by the Guinness World Records (GWR), the event is an indicator of the level of willingness Arab women have for participate in such a campaign.

Location:
Minstry of Education Sports Compound
Jeddah, Western
Saudi Arabia
