ABU DHABI: The Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, on Friday participated in the third week of the "Walk Unified" initiative, which is held every Friday at the Umm Al Emarat Park in Abu Dhabi.

Sheikh Mohammed was accompanied during the two-kilometre walk by Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs; Dr Sultan Bin Ahmad Sultan Al Jaber, Minister of State; Khalifa Saeed Sulaiman, Director of the Dubai Protocol and Hospitality Department; Mohammed Abdullah Al Junaibi, Chairman of the Higher Organising Committee of Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi 2019, and several senior officials.

Sheikh Mohammed said that he was pleased to take part in this sporting and social initiative that aims to encourage people to exercise by walking, which is a physically and mentally challenging sport.

He also praised the efforts of those concerned with organising the Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi 2019, which will be a boost to people of determination in the UAE and the entire world.
