The race was held at the company’s headquarters in Abu Dhabi, with the attendance of Ali bin Tamim, Director-General of Abu Dhabi Media, along with department and section directors.
The participation of the company’s employees is a part of its social responsibility, which includes organising charity, humanitarian and social programmes.

“Our goal was not only to win the race, but also to enable our employees to fulfil their humanitarian role to promote the values of giving that characterise the Emirati community. It established the UAE’s humanitarian reputation and made it the leader in various indexes related to giving and supporting the vulnerable and less fortunate around the world, regardless of religion, race or nationality,” he added.
The race aims to involve the community in promoting giving, by donating water and delivering supplies to areas suffering from a lack of drinking water. All Emirati institutions are participating in the race.
