At the launch of the fifth edition of the Dubai Run, astronaut Dr. Al Neyadi presented the Dubai Fitness Challenge flag to H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed. The gesture symbolises appreciation for His Highness’ unwavering commitment to the wellbeing and happiness of the Dubai community by encouraging the adoption of sports as a crucial element in preserving human health.
