A new event on the track, RahmaYAS is a joint initiative from Yas Marina Circuit and Rahma – a charitable service Cancer Patient Care Society in Abu Dhabi that provides practical and psychological support for people diagnosed with cancer.
The Cancer Patient Care Society was established in accordance with the approval of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council, and is a nonprofit civil society under the patronage of HH The Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi. The campaign 'Rahma' translates to compassion and its aim is to enhance the quality of life for Cancer Patients and educate the public on the value of compassion.
With that said, there will be a charity sporting event on 7 November at Yas Marina Circuit. The event gates will open at 4pm and the activities will kick off at 5.30pm (walking and cycling). The society's slogan is "We are here for you" and the sporting event will have two teams, White and Purple. During the non-competitive 3km walk and 5km cycle each person will either be given a purple or white shirt and people are encouraged to find their opposite colour and walk/cycle together. Bikes are available to rent upon registration with all registration money donated to the Rahma Charity. There will be bike stands on the day and everyone is encouraged to bring their own bike no matter how fast or slow it is
