Wings for Life World Run in Dubai
It is the only Middle Eastern city hosting the Wings for Life World Run, organisers announced on Sunday.
The race, scheduled for May 3, is a fundraiser for the Wings for Life research foundation on spinal-cord injuries, which affect almost three million people worldwide, the foundation says.
The run has raised US$4 million (Dh1.5m) since its first event last year. Leading causes of spinal-cord injuries are traffic accidents and falls. Participants can register at www.wingsforlifeworldrun.com. All fees are donated to funding research.
