A step forward for diabetes awareness

A DIABETES awareness campaign was launched by Al Rashid Group (ARG), a division of Landmark Retail, at a conference at the Marina Mall, Manama.

Beat Diabetes is a corporate social initiative aimed to spread awareness about the condition and its causes among the community, said officials.

The first of ARG’s events to mark World Diabetes Day is its Beat Diabetes Walk, due to be held on November 5.

The three-kilometre walk will be held at Arad Bay Park, Muharraq, and is open to the public.

Walkers under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult, said officials.

Participation is free and there is no registration.

Healthy food for diabetics, free refreshments and free blood sugar testing will be on offer during the walk.
