ABU DHABI (ALETIHAD)

Active Abu Dhabi, a collaborative initiative between Emirates Foundation and PureHealth, has launched a weekly emirate-wide series of community walks starting on April 25, 2024. Building on the success of the First Steps challenge, which engaged more than 1,000 residents in person and more digitally via the Pura app, the gatherings encourage people of all fitness levels to come together to boost wellbeing and connect with others within the community.

The series began on Thursday, April 25, 2024, at the Al Mushrif Palace and will take place Saturday, April 27, 2024, at Umm Al Emarat Park, and will continue at different locations each Thursday and Saturday weekly until Saturday, June 1, 2024. As summer hits its peak, activities will move indoors to several Abu Dhabi locations from June to August before back to outdoor venues from September.

Mansour Al Dhaheri, Founder of Active Abu Dhabi, said: “I am very proud of this flourishing partnership between Emirates Foundation and PureHealth. Watching Active Abu Dhabi grow as a popular community event that connects people through movement fills me with immense excitement. The journey to wellness begins with movement, and I encourage residents across Abu Dhabi to make the most of our year-long series of events. Whether you are a keen runner, or you are looking to take the first steps of your movement journey, or simply looking to get outdoors and walk with friends, there is something for everyone. Come and discover the physical, mental and social benefits of moving together.”

Ahmed Al Shamsi, CEO of Emirates Foundation, said: “It gives us a great pleasure to be part of this innovative collaboration with PureHealth – not only will it inspire people to focus more strongly on their overall wellbeing, but the initiative will foster a sense of social cohesion as well. The Active Abu Dhabi Community Walks are quite literally a step in the right direction to ensure a happier and healthier society, and I encourage the whole community to participate if they can.”

All community members can gain free access to walking and running venues by registering online. Participants are encouraged to download Pura, PureHealth’s comprehensive, personalised mobile application, utilising it as an AI-enabled partner throughout their wellness journey, helping individuals to track progress and potential.

Active Abu Dhabi’s calendar of events offers a range of activities that encourage movement, foster community spirit, raise environmental awareness and inspire youth.
