DUBAI – Participants to the Unity Run walked and ran to celebrate and promote “Dubai… A city for everyone”. 

dsc_2900Among the thousands who took part Friday, November 25, was Katryn Grace. The Filipina who has been working in Dubai for three years said that she first found out about the Unity Run through her company.

“The experience was very uplifting and inspiring to see people who are disabled to run next to me. If kaya nila, kaya ko rin,” she said.

Being an avid runner who takes every opportunity to run after work, Grace’s other reason to take part in the Unity Run was because of the social cause that goes with it.

Proceeds collected from the event will be donated to the Al Noor Training Centre for Children with Special Needs.

The 27-year old said that she loves running as it has become a time for her and her loved ones, such as her boyfriend, to bond.

Her boyfriend, Jay Taguba Sales, supported her when she ran Friday. According to Sales, Grace always loves to help other people. That was why he knew she did not hesitate to say “Yes” to the event.

“We always run in different events in Dubai. We even do obstacle races,” he added.

Sales said that they participated in past events such as the Warrior Challenge, Spartan Race, and We Run DXB to name some.

dsc_2721Grace urged Filipinos to participate in similar events also as it could be beneficial. They could help raise awareness especially if the run is for a social cause and keep themselves fit as well.

The Filipina mentioned that it was not important to run fast. It was much more important to finish the race regardless how long one would take running.

Families and friends took part in the event wearing their Unity Run shirts in the spirit of unity through diversity. Side by side, people coming from different races, ages, and walks of life celebrated the special day together.

“The Unity Run is a celebration of togetherness. It supports Al Noor Training Centre for Persons with Disabilities. It also supports Dubai’s initiative of being a disability friendly city by 2020 by raising awareness of people with special needs. There was fantastic support from the whole community,” Ruth Dickinson, Managing Director of the FITT Group, said.

She thanked all the volunteers, Dubai Police, Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), Dubai Ambulance, Emirates NBD, and all the partners and sponsors who supported them throughout the whole way.

“The Dubai community responded to the call of unity and there were over 200 volunteers. Some acting as ‘buddies’ to those who needed special assistance or even just a companion,” Dickinson added.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.

There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    The things i have seen in terms of computer memory is always that there are specifications such as SDRAM, DDR and the like, that must go with the features of the mother board. If the pc’s motherboard is rather current while there are no computer OS issues, modernizing the storage space literally requires under one hour. It’s among the easiest computer system upgrade methods one can think about. Thanks for giving your ideas.

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
