ABU DHABI: More than 300 students, faculty, staff, and other community members from NYU Abu Dhabi participated in the weekly Walk Unified initiative on Friday. The walk aims for wider inclusion, community understanding and acceptance, and encouraging a healthy lifestyle for people with and without intellectual disabilities.

Over 7,000 Special Olympics athletes representing over 170 countries from around the world will participate in the Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi 2019.

Launched by the Higher Committee of the Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi 2019, Walk Unified is a community initiative activated every Friday on a weekly basis in advance of the 2018 Special Olympics MENA Games Abu Dhabi.
