Beat Diabetes Walk 2015

It was a lovely sunny and a little windy morning! Everything and everyone surrounded around were complete Blue! The walkathon was held this morning on the 20th of November 2015 at the Zabeel Park. Gates opened up at 7am (pretty early for a Friday Morning, but a huge number of people showed up!).

Beat diabetes

A little about #BeatDiabetes; This great initiative has been taken by Landmark Group and all the entry fees of the walk will be donated to the Al Jalila Foundation to support diabetic healthcare in the UAE. The initiative was launched in 2009 in the UAE. They held several contests through all of their social networking sites.

Stage performances!

Water bottles were available throughout the way towards the walk. All of the participants of the walk received a healthy snack provided by Barakat Quality Juices and Weetabix at the venue.  Fun city sponsored some fun games and balloons for the little ones. Stage area was filled with entertainers, clowns, jugglers, singers and some really good music. Bouncing castles, fitness demos, free blood glucose testing, competitions for the kids and a healthy food market all of it! (Sounds fun!!)

Onetouch Goodie bag stand

The only thing I was disappointed was at ‘Onetouch’ Gift collection stand, the staff was really not capable enough to handle people. There was a mess during distributing the gift bags and many ladies and kids ended up being injured.

Not to forget, ‘Volunteer in UAE’ did a fabulous job! Hats off to them for their amazing support and maintain every single person at the walk today.

Beat Diabetes merchandise goodies!

These are some of the goodies I received a day before the walk. I’m super excited to enjoy these goodies. Even though I did use some of them at the walk itself, but a few more! Thank You #BeatDiabetes!

Congrats on another year of success! See you next year.

Don’t forget to follow them for more event pictures, details and some really cool contests!
