Relay for Life is a team fundraising event where team members take turns walking around a track for 24 hours. Each team is asked to have a member on the track at all times to signify that cancer never sleeps.
In the UAE, Relay for Life is organized by Friends of Cancer Patients (FOCP), a non-profit Society, founded in 1999 under the directives and patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Jawaher Bint Mohammed Al Qasimi, Wife of the Ruler of Sharjah-UAE. The event is hosted in partnership with The American University of Sharjah and the American Cancer Society.
Taking place for the first time in UAE, Relay for Life gives everyone a chance to celebrate cancer survivors and carers; remember loved ones lost to cancer; and fight back by raising awareness and funds to support the work of Friends of Cancer Patients.
People from all walks of life will walk around a track at their own pace during the event. Relay For Life is for people of all ages and fitness levels – anyone can take part!
The event will take place at The American University of Sharjah Campus.
