What's On (Abu Dhabi) - - ACTIVE -

The UAE cer­tainly has di­a­betes in its sights at the mo­ment – Oc­to­ber saw the in­tro­duc­tion of new taxes on sug­ary and fizzy drinks in a bid to help com­bat obe­sity, and this month sees the re­turn of Walk at Yas Ma­rina Cir­cuit. Walk2017 is the same as pre­vi­ous years – you pay Dhs10 and walk with thou­sands of oth­ers around the city’s iconic For­mula One track on Yas Is­land. The ini­tia­tive is or­gan­ised by Im­pe­rial Col­lege Lon­don Di­a­betes Cen­tre, Mubadala, Health­point and Cleve­land Clinic Abu Dhabi. This year is a spe­cial one for Walk – it’s the tenth an­niver­sary of the event. Chil­dren un­der 16 get in for free, and as well as the stroll around the track, there’ll be live en­ter­tain­ment.
