Celebrity Cruises has teamed with the American Football team, the Miami Dolphins to raise awareness for breast cancer. The two organisations – each recognised for their ongoing efforts and devotion to the cause – are joining 25 breast cancer survivors from the University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center to honour them with some of the best experiences both Celebrity Cruises and the Dolphins have to offer.
This Sunday, these women will be honoured by Celebrity Cruises and the Miami Dolphins in a special pre-game ceremony at the Miami Dolphins’ home game, walking the orange carpet at the Sun Life Stadium and being individually introduced to the tens of thousands of Miami Dolphins fans, or “Finatics”, in attendance. During the game they will be hosted by Celebrity Cruises’ and Miami Dolphins’ executives at an exclusive reception to cheer on the Dolphins as they take on the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Then, when Celebrity Cruises’ newest Solstice Class ship – Celebrity Eclipse – debuts in Miami in November, the 25 women will be treated to a complimentary, celebratory cruise experience hosted by Celebrity Cruises’ President & CEO Dan Hanrahan and the ship’s Godmother, highly accomplished British ocean-racing yachtswoman and author Emma Pontin, herself a survivor of the disease and an outspoken advocate for the cause.
“All of us at Celebrity Cruises are honoured to have the opportunity to host these incredible women who have endured so much, and have emerged victorious. These 25 represent all of the women out there who are winning this difficult battle daily, and we salute their bravery,” said Celebrity Cruises President and CEO Dan Hanrahan. “We also are honoured and thrilled to partner with the Miami Dolphins in extending both of our organisations’ continuing commitment to raise awareness of the great importance of finding a cure for this disease.”
“We salute Celebrity Cruises for their generosity toward these valiant women who are an inspiration to all of us,” said Miami Dolphins CEO Mike Dee. “We look forward to celebrating their triumph against this insidious disease by rolling out the orange carpet for them at our next home game.”
