Highlights from Breast Cancer Awareness at DAA
On October 20th, students dressed in PINK to support Breast Cancer Awareness month, which occurs during the month of October.
Al Jalila Foundation has provided us with cylinders to help raise funds for cancer research. You can find them in multiple areas on campus and they will be available to accept contributions throughout the month of October. We thank our community members for their kindness and support.
Here's a sea of pink as students formed the symbolic ribbon on the field, all captured by Drone!
