Dubai Holding Fields Largest Corporate Team At Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon 2015
(26 January 2015)


Dubai Holding, the global investment holding company, once again fielded the largest corporate team for the Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon with the record participation of 2,430 employees from the Corporate Office, Jumeirah Group, TECOM Investments, Dubai Properties Group, Emirates International Telecommunications, Dubai Group and Dubai International Capital in this weekend's races. This marked the ninth year that Dubai Holding supported and sponsored the event as part of its Corporate Wellness Programme.

The contingent, led by the Group's Chief Operating Officer, Fadel Al Ali, saw participation of the leadership team across its companies. Employees were not only encouraged to run for their own benefit, but also to support a good cause and raise funds for Al Jalila Foundation, an organisation that aims to uplift the health of the UAE population by supporting medical treatment, education and research. Dubai Holding, this year, raised more than AED11,000 in aid of the foundation.

The 2015 race was also the fifth year that Dubai Holding sponsored the UAE National prize category, which it introduced in 2010, in line with Dubai Government's efforts of supporting healthier living habits. Emirati participation has, thus, considerably increased both within the group and from amongst the wider community. Under this category, Dubai Holding offers a total of AED86,000 to the three fastest UAE nationals in the women's and men's 42km Marathon, 10km Road Races and pushchair categories.

Ahmad Bin Byat, Chief Executive Officer, Dubai Holding, said, "It is very encouraging to once again represent the largest corporate team at the marathon. This is testament to the success of our Corporate Wellness Programme and our Wellness Ambassador, the three-time Olympic champion Kenenisa Bekele, who helped inspire people from within Dubai Holding and the wider community to participate in this weekend's races."
