The Middle East Arthritis Foundation (MEAF) is challenging people with its ‘Walk for Arthritis’ event on 22nd February, to get moving in an effort to improve the lives of the one in five people in the UAE who live with arthritis.
“Walk for Arthritis’ is the largest arthritis gathering in the UAE and this annual event that makes every step count and every participant matter. The community walk is a 3.5km distance, which will start at 8am. It’s open to all ages and offers a range of fun activities for the whole family. The walkathon will include fun activities for the entire family including a fancy dress competition providing three chances to win. With the theme ‘Bones and Joints’, participants are invited to show off their colorful, themed costumes during the walk.
In its continuous efforts to inspire and educate, MEAF also invited family and friends to offer encouragement and support. Physiotherapy exercise demos will be conducted by fitness professionals for patients on how to effectively follow an exercise routine. The UAE business community actively supports the awareness and early diagnosis of arthritis, with AbbVie, Pfizer, Janssen, Novartis, Eli Lilly and other brands being companies that partner with the MEAF to support the cause.
