The Health & Fitness Fun Festival is the most high profile health-focused event in the UAE. Held annually for the duration of over a month, the Festival brings together health and fitness enthusiasts, medical experts, fitness clubs, organizations focused on healthy living, nutritionists and chefs to promote health awareness and fitness while having fun. The 2019 edition of the Festival is inspired by the “People of Determination” and shall serve UAE’s Vision 2021 and its National Priority towards “Cohesive Society and Preserved Identity” through Disability Inclusion in the community. This year’s motto “Capability with Every Disability” emphasizes that people with disabilities are diverse and should not be defined by their disability. Participants of the Health & Fitness Fun Festival will enjoy a month full of thematic activities designed to shed light on the various types of temporary and permanent disabilities that include physical, sensory, mental, communication, educational or psychological impairments that can hamper or reduce the abilities to carry out the day to day activities. We will address the below topics and raise community awareness about: Mobility and Physical Impairments, Down syndrome, Epilepsy, Autism, Dyslexia ADHD, Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Hearing Disability, Vision Disability and more. The event will also offer free health awareness and fitness classes, sports tournaments, races and challenges, as well as workshops about eating healthier and finding a healthy weight, experts’ tips about lifestyle changes that can help you prevent disease and lower stress. Our health partners will conduct free medical testing for all HFFF visitors. Famous chefs will teach you how to prepare healthy home recipes for the whole family to cook and enjoy, add to that loads and loads of fun! Through this festival ACTVET aims to instill that: how a society treats its disabled is a true measure of a civilization, hence HFFF will address disability topics to the community through real cases and shall highlight successful experiences and stories of people who are determined to make a difference.
