The Dubai Police community-based initiative ‘Positive Spirit’ has recently honoured 75-year-old Ahmed Muhammad Ali for actively participating in its “Lose Weight, Stay Healthy” fitness programme in Oud Al Muteena 1 Park.

Colonel Ali Khalfan Al Mansouri, Acting Director of the General Department of Community Happiness in Dubai Police and Chairman of the Positive Spirit Initiative Committee, praised Ali and all participants for joining the Programme. He also confirmed that Dubai Police was keen to launch community initiatives to raise awareness of the importance of exercising, especially during the holy month of Ramadan.

The “Lose Weight, Stay Healthy” programme motivates participants in Dubai residential neighbourhoods to take advantage of sports as an effective social tool to exploit the leisure time for the benefit of all members of society of all groups and ages, which is what the Dubai Police are keen to achieve through the activities and events they organise annually.

Captain Awad Mubarak, Coordinator of the Positive Spirit Initiative, said the “Lose Weight, Stay Healthy” programme spreads awareness of the importance of maintaining an ideal weight, combating obesity, and introducing a healthy lifestyle and appropriate nutrition intake for each age group.

Captain Mubarak further added that exercising during Ramadan helps boost heart and lung muscles, which increases the body’s ability to withstand fasting during the day and strengthens the immune system.

Recently, the Dubai Police has honoured the first fifty players who completed all the stages of Expo 2020 Adventures with the highest scores.

The interactive game was released last September, coinciding with the grand opening of the global event in all smartphone stores.

Brigadier Khalid Nasser Al Razooqi, Director of the General Department of Artificial Intelligence, said that the Department, on the occasion of UAE golden Jubilee, announced the Fifty Challenge to award dedicated and excellent players of Expo 2020 Adventures, who explore all the stages of the game and score the highest among other players.

The honouring ceremony was held at the Smart Police Station (SPS) at Expo 2020 Dubai, where the 50 winners from inside and outside the country were awarded in the presence of the force’s employees.
