posted on 29/12/2014: 2754 views



UAE residents, as part of the Stay Strong Campaign, set a Guinness World Record at Burj Park, by lighting 11,022 bulbs, which represents the number of Stay Strong app downloads in the UAE.

The event highlighted the need for diabetes education and awareness. Speakers at the event included "Stay Strong” campaign ambassadors: Abdulla Al Hashidi, an Emirati with diabetes, who gave attendees an inspirational story of how he has overcame obstacles while living with the disease. Other speakers included Raha Moharrak, the first and youngest Saudi woman to climb Mount Everest and Fayez Al Saed, an Emirati singer.

Mohamed Hammad, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Benchmark Middle East, said: "We are extremely delighted and proud that we were able to bring 11,022 UAE residents together and we have set the Guinness World Record in support of the Dubai against Diabetes programme. We believe that we all need to communicate in an innovative way with the public to drive home the message.” – The Gulf Today - http://gulftoday.ae/portal/6c495b87-3fb9-4478-a97c-dd6d4457a9ef.aspx
