Dubai, UAE: Zulekha Healthcare Group announced their collaboration with the Dubai Sports Council (DSC), reaffirming the need for individuals to maintain a healthy lifestyle and stay fit with different sports in line with the objective of Government of UAE in harnessing a healthy lifestyle for residents. The Group has also launched its Health and Wellbeing Initiative for the Year – ‘Take Care’ on this occasion. The collaboration will see the healthcare group and DSC together hosting sports events for the UAE residents including running, cycling, football, volleyball, cricket, netball and more through the year.

The collaboration was formally announced by Managing Director of Zulekha Healthcare Group Taher Shams and Ahmad Ibrahim Busherin, Head of Community Events Section Sports Events Department at DSC.

The Dubai Sports Council team conveys they strive to support the national objective of achieving a healthy lifestyle for all and this they do through various initiatives at our sports clubs, courts, and the Dubai Sports World, along with organisations that are equally enthusiastic about promoting fitness and sports as an interest.  They are happy to collaborate with Zulekha Healthcare Group in 2023 and take this partnership forward beyond just the sport and encourage public to realise their fitness needs.

Taher Shams adds, “We are excited to partner with DSC, the sports authority in Dubai leading the city to be a healthier and happier place to be in. We are fortunate to be in the right place at the right time. With the recently concluded Dubai Fitness Challenge (DFC), many UAE residents have taken lifestyle changes seriously and are physically more active. Daily exercises also boost mental wellness.  Our employees too participated in the challenge and have continued their fitness regime that started as a part of DFC. There are greater opportunities to engage and involve our communities and we are happy to join hands today in this endeavour”.

Zulekha healthcare Group has been at the forefront driving wellbeing with awareness initiatives on prevention and early detection of diseases including mental wellbeing over several years since inception in 1964. The Zulekha team touches hundreds of lives in UAE each month by way of complimentary awareness sessions and health checks across corporates, clubs, government organisations, educational institutions and many other community groups.
