DMCC to host Kobe Bryant health and fitness weekend
Dubai, August 18, 2013
Dubai Multi Commodities Centre Authority (DMCC) is set to host its Kobe Bryant Health and Fitness Weekend as part of the basketball superstar’s first trip to the region.
The event will be held from September 26 to 27 and will include a celebrity basketball game, a youth basketball clinic, and a slam dunk competition.
Ahmed Bin Sulayem, executive chairman, said: “At DMCC, we strongly believe that a healthier lifestyle means a better quality of life. Our support of the DMCC Kobe Bryant Health and Fitness Weekend highlights our commitment towards promoting initiatives that encourage the UAE population to get fit, get active and stay healthy.”
“The weekend will show our youth that fitness can be fun and interacting with one of the world’s greatest basketball legends will inspire them to aim high and stay healthy,” Sulayem added.
DMCC’s Almas Tower in its Free Zone, is also a key location for fitness enthusiasts across the UAE who test their strength and endurance by climbing the tower’s 63 flights of stairs, said a statement.
UAE-based charity Gulf for Good will use the stairs as a training site in September for their upcoming challenges, it said. - TradeArabia News Service
