How do you fancy running up 36 flights of stairs? That’s the challenge on offer as the popular Hilton Tower Race returns for a seventh year this month.
The annual fundraising challenge will take place on October 20th to raise awareness for the ‘Rashid Centre For Disabled’.
Hilton Dubai The Walk together with Race ME will be hosting the event as contestants run up 730 steps of the JBR The Walk based building, crossing the finish line on the 35th floor.
Those who complete the challenge are met with unparalleled views of the Arabian Gulf and a post-event celebration at the hotel’s well-known rooftop bar and dining venue, Pure Sky Lounge.
As an initiative introduced to raise awareness and funds for charities and causes in need, the Hilton team is working with the ‘Rashid Centre for Disabled’ for the second year in a row, providing much-needed services and support to children within the local community.
Created in 1994, Rashid Centre for Disabled serves the purpose of developing children’s abilities to function and learn within their environments, and to develop maximum independence.
The race is open to the public, with residents, local businesses and tourists encouraged to participate. Last year’s winning time to beat is three minutes and 46 seconds. The event kicks off at 7:30am and is followed by a healthy breakfast on the 35th floor, once the participants have completed the challenge.
Alexander Musch, Hotel Manager of Hilton Dubai The Walk, said: “The event has been extremely successful over the last couple of years, and we hope that this year, it will be even better. Hilton has a long history of giving back to the local community and we thank all those who are joining us in our efforts to raise awareness and funds for the Rashid Center for Disabled.”
The race has a number of sponsors onboard who have been supporting the initiative for years. They include: GreenParking, the only parking company in the Middle East that represents a one-stop-shop for all parking oriented products, services and solutions; Precor, a worldwide industry leader in exercise equipment, providing state-of-the-art fitness gear to health clubs, hotels, spas, fitness centers, and private homes all over the world; AIG, one of the leading insurance companies in the world; AGMC, the official BMW Group importer for Dubai, Sharjah and the Northern Emirates; and TEC, one of the top event management company and event planning agencies in the region.
