Sarah Omolewu, Public Relations Manager at Raffles Dubai organised the event by gathering Dubais top media, radio personalities, bloggers and socialites. She urged everyone to use their various outlets to write features, blog, facebook and tweet to advance awareness about breast cancer and urge people to get tested.

She declared - "Nearly everyone worldwide knows someone that has been affected by breast cancer. While we are waiting for a cure, early detection is the key to saving lives. Thousands of lives could be saved each year if consciousness and education is increased. It is vital that the influential personalities in each society globally utilize their various platforms to advance awareness by urging both women and men to get tested. "
