Abu Dhabi UAE, November 2013: A 30-minute brisk walk every day, combined with a balanced diet, are all it takes to adopt a healthy lifestyle. This is the message from Imperial College London Diabetes Centre's Walk 2013, scheduled for next weekend – Friday November 15 – at the F1 track at Yas Marina Circuit.
This year, the event’s already-proven appeal is boosted by a fresh new promotion encouraging online registration with the chance to win two tickets to an Etihad destination of choice.
According to event organisers, the ‘Walk Of A Lifetime’ promo puts the event on track to gather a bumper crowd all eager to pace the circuit and place the spotlight on making regular exercise a daily practise. Indeed, the word is out that a whopping 60 million steps will be taken by more than 17,000 people at Walk 2013 next Friday (November 15).
The event, supported by ActiveLife from Daman, is part of ICLDC’s award-winning public health awareness campaign, Diabetes-Knowledge-Action, under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak. Over the past months, the campaign has rolled out a host of mini-walks across the UAE with more than four million steps already been taken by schools and organisations who have stepped up in support of Start Walking., the exciting new grassroots community initiative.
