The walk is a weekly event in Abu Dhabi that will take place every Friday leading up to the 2018 Special Olympics IX MENA Games.

H.H. Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai Joined thousands of community members to officially kick off of the first Unified Walk. Sheikh Mohamed noted that this initiative is also a message to the community that sports bring people together. Volunteering your time to such causes is good for both your physical and emotional health.
