The Annual Beat Diabetes Walk was held on Friday,18th November at the Zabeel park which was organised by the Landmark Group.
The money collected from the ticket sale for this Walk is donated to the Al Jalila Foundation, for the free screening of diabetes patients.
Appreciating and always striving to give back to this wonderful community, Middlesex University Dubai sponsored the Walk for the 32 participating students. They were supported and guided by Unaiza Farooqui, the University’s Charity Club coordinator and Fardin Zamani, member of the Middlesex Athletics Team.
The 3.8 Kilometer walk started at 8am and ended at 11am. After the walk, participants could check their sugar levels at the blood glucose for free testing kiosks which was followed by games and refreshments.
The IFP students were happy to be involved in community service and raise awareness on diabetes among their peers.
