Zaabeel Park on Friday transformed into a fitness hub as over 20,000 people from all walks of life went around the park wearing blue t-shirts to create awareness on diabetes. They were participating in the 11th edition of the 'Beat Diabetes Walk', Landmark Group's annual flagship CSR initiative. It kicked off with a relay race of senior citizens organised by the Dubai Sports Council. Around 15 senior citizens, mostly over 70, jogged around the park being cheered on by thousands of onlookers and participants who had gathered for the event.

Zakaria Alassar, in his 70s, said: "I feel it is important to join hands and create awareness about this disease. Many of my friends are suffering from it, which is why today I, along with some more senior citizens, have come together to raise awareness about this disease. It was such a fantastic start to our day to see so many happy and smiling faces of people from different nationalities walking for a meaningful cause."

Participants included thousands of students as well as employees and families, who danced and grooved as they walked and danced to the DJ present in the park. These included free workout sessions by Fitness First and sports activities such as yoga. A Super Kidz Fun Arena kept the little ones engaged.
