The UAE's leading community event is back for its 2019 edition...

The weather is cooling down, and events season has begun, which means we can get ready for the fourth edition of the Emirates NBD Unity Run! Back for 2019, the event is taking place on Friday 15th November in Dubai Silicon Oasis.

The Emirates NBD Unity Run is the UAE's leading community event, which supports people of determination and promotes inclusion.

Held under the Patronage of HH Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Higher Committee for the Protection of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, the event is being organised under the umbrella of the Hamdan bin Mohammed Community Sports Initiative.

It actively supports Al Noor Training Centre for Persons with Disabilities, Senses Residential and Day Care Centre and Emirates Red Crescent (ERC).

The event has grown year on year, and for 2018, the Emirates NBD Unity Run raised and donated a staggering AED 119,207 to the centres and ERC. Over 5,000 people of all abilities took part last year, and for 2019, the event is expected to be bigger and better than ever.

The fun, family event offers participants the chance to visit and interact with the Unity Village, filled with kids activities, fitness sessions, yoga, arts and crafts, entertainment and refreshments. That's not all - for 2019, the event will include UAE Year of Tolerance celebrations, which will see school invited to participate in activities and entertainment.

There will also be the International Cultural Pavilions from embassies, consulates, and cultural groups representing the diversity of residents in the UAE.
