Sheraton Grand Doha Resort & Convention Hotel, the 5-star iconic hotel in Doha, hosted a sports event on Sunday 13th of November as part of their Go Pink! Campaign.  This initiative was held by Sheraton Grand Doha in Partnership with Qatar Cancer Society, and supported by Zumba Fitness Doha Qatar Team lead by Imad Askar, Swasthi Yoga lead by Vishnu Prasad, Doha Sport Company (Les Mills), and sponsored by Mr. Hamad Adel Ali Bin Ali, Tawar Mall, Mr. Nasser Bin Shaheem Bin Tawar, Jassim Jaber Est., Mr. Abdulatif Bin Mohammed Maslamani, Eurotech, Adaptex Security Equipment, Digitek, Jaidah Automotive and Zaatar w Zeit.

The Go Pink! Sports event featured an array of exciting activities including ZumbaTM, yoga and RPMTM cycling. Sheraton Grand Doha planned the Go Pink! Sports event to promote cancer awareness through healthy and active living.  The sports event raised QR 158,600.00 in proceeds, all of which was generously donated to Qatar Cancer Society.

This year’s sports event was supervised by a team of certified fitness experts, and Sheraton Grand Doha hosted approximately 250 women who danced, cycled and stretched in support of breast cancer. The event was dedicated to engage women and to reinforce the message that breast cancer is curable and treatable if detected and diagnosed early, and also to highlight the importance of a healthy and active lifestyle for general wellbeing.  

 

“The Go Pink! sports event is just one in a series of volunteer activities and programs that the Sheraton Grand Doha participates in throughout the year.  These initiatives provide us with opportunities to make meaningful differences in the lives of others by creating positive and long-lasting changes in our community,” said Nick Heath, Sheraton Grand Doha Resort & Convention hotel Complex General Manager. 

 

We are so thankful for the continued support in the area of breast cancer awareness demonstrated by the Sheraton Grand Doha.  Their passion for reaching out into the community and educating women is to be admired.  Programs such as the Go Pink! sports event really underscore that through teamwork and education we can increase the profile of cancer prevention and treatments,” Omar AlTwaisi, said of Qatar Cancer Society.
