Pupils and staff from Gulf English School (GES), one of the leading international schools in Doha, tied up their trainers to participate in a charity walkathon to mark World Diabetes Day. This was the culmination of a month-long series of diabetes awareness events which took place at the school throughout November, focusing on diabetes prevention and promoting healthy eating. The disease is thought to affect around 16% of Qatar’s adult population.

During the walkathon, a large group of the GES community marched through Aspire Park, carrying banners and chanting: “beat diabetes”. GES primary school head girl Al Maha Noor said: “This was a good way to make more people know about diabetes and how we can fight it. Thank you to everyone who participated”. During the month, the school also organized interactive lectures and seminars with Qatar Diabetes Association to explain and promote healthy nutrition and lifestyles to pupils and staff.
