Kuwaits Next Health Event - November 27th Beat Diabetes Walkathon

Strangely enough, I found out about this on the day of the 10K marathon!

I decided to go for a walk afterward, treat myself to a nice cup of joe, to compensate for the one I missed after waking up @ 7:30 that morning for a race that starts @ 8:30!

Anyhoo, some background info on the walk:

Landmark Group (remember, Centrepoint's previous name?), the region’s leading retail and hospitality conglomerate, announces the launch of ‘Beat Diabetes’ walkathon. The walkathon, which is supported by Ministry of Health and Dasman Diabetes Institute, is a corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative aimed to further spread awareness about the condition and its causes among the wider community. The walkathon will take place on Saturday, 27th November 2010; it will begin from The Yacht Club and end at Green Island. Registration is free; forms are available at Landmark Group outlets (Centrepoint, Max, Home Centre and New Look stores).

The ‘Beat Diabetes’ campaign this year will host walkathons and free blood glucose screening.

In Kuwait the screening will take place on 24th and 25th November across the 11 outlets of Landmark group.

Unfortunately for me, I shall not be here for the event :(

It shall be from the Yacht Club to Green Island, starting @ 9am

BUT! January, I am definately all in for the half-marathon, 21K, bring it on!
