Beat Diabetes Walk Supports Diabetes Awareness.

The Millennium Airport Hotel Dubai Team Walks the Extra Mile to Beat Diabetes

The Millennium Airport Hotel Dubai team took strides to beat diabetes at this year's walk, which was held at Za’ Abeel Park and organised by the Landmark Group on February 18, 2024, from 8 am to 1 pm. Together, we took a step towards a healthier future and showed our commitment to raising awareness for this important cause.

The Walk is a flagship event of the Beat Diabetes initiative and, over the years, has become an important calendar event that brings communities together to pledge their support for diabetes awareness.

The first walk, organised in 2009 in the UAE, saw the participation of over 5,000 people. In 2010, the initiative was extended to Bahrain, Oman, Kuwait, Qatar, and India. The following year, the concept was taken to Saudi Arabia. Over the last six years, the event has garnered immense support with the participation of several government authorities, medical entities, corporations, schools, and local communities. Last year, the walk had over 60,000 participants across seven countries in the GCC and India.

Mr. Simon Moore, General Manager of Millennium Airport Hotel Dubai, said,” I am so proud of our team for participating in the Beat Diabetes Walk event! It was empowering to see thousands come together in the fight against this preventable disease. We will continue participating in any event like this to support each other on our journey to better health.”

Diabetes is a major health concern across the world, affecting millions of people. Let's continue to inspire change and spread hope. Together, we raised awareness for a great cause.
