Diabetes Walkathon

Friday 9 November 2018, 02.00PM – 05.00PM Oxygen Park, Education City, Ar-Rayyan, Doha, Qatar

Qatar Diabetes Association organizes the Annual Diabetes Walkathon to celebrate World Diabetes Day 2018. The even will be held under the theme: the family and diabetes.

The walkathon will aim to:

  • Raise awareness about the impact that diabetes has on the family and create a support network for those affected.
  • Promote the role of the family in the management, care, and prevention of diabetes.

A day of family activities will also take place along with the Walkathon, as well as booths for diabetes risk assessment measures.

Join us and walk in support of a family member or a friend who lives with diabetes or is at risk of acquiring it. By doing this, you will be taking important steps toward developing a wider understanding of the disease, and helping to remind healthcare policy and decision makers worldwide that we have a shared responsibility to improve the lives of people living with diabetes in our communities.

The participants will be provided with free t-shirts, caps, healthy snacks, and water at the event.
