“The first message the event wanted to promote was to raise awareness of the breast cancer disease,” said President of Al Jazirah Vehicles Agencies, Sheikh Abdullah bin Fahad Al-Kraidees. “We need to do more as a society to promote breast cancer awareness throughout the year with creative ideas that connect with key audiences in our society. We have to talk more about topics which impact people’s health, and push the importance within our communities about the need for early screening which improves the chances of recovery from breast cancer.
“Drifting is one of the most popular sports in Saudi Arabia and, at AJVA, we are committed to providing a safe and secure environment for people to enjoy and appreciate different types of driving. I’d like to congratulate Al Jazirah Ford Racing Team for their remarkable achievement.”
