February 21, 2009 – HRH Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein, wife of HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE Ruler of Dubai joined almost 500 participants in the Emirates Arthritis Foundation’s (EAF) second annual walkathon in solidarity to raise public awareness on the disease.

Princess Haya was dressed in a T-shirt and a cap with the foundation’s logo, walked with the participants at Dubai Festival City and completed the 2.5 km walkathon. “Arthritis is not an age defined disease. When young people with arthritis do not get the right treatment at the right time they can become disabled. It is essential to raise awareness of this disease to prevent damage and disability”, said HRH Princess Haya.

Money raised at the marathon will go towards the endowment fund, meant to treat arthritis patients in need of expensive medications.
