Dubai launched today, July 19, a really interesting campaign under the slogan ‘Your Weight in Gold’. This campaign aims to encourage a healthy lifestyle and it is not by chance that it was launched during the Ramadan.
The idea of this campaign is that citizens who lose at least 2 kg in 30 days will receive 2 grams of solid gold, as Emirates 24/7 mentions. The big winner will be the person who manages to lose the most weight by the end of this period, and the top three winners will get a gold coin equivalent to Dh20,000 through a lucky draw.

Dubai Municipality has provided residents with safe and accessible walking tracks,” explained Hussain Nasser Lootah, Director General of Dubai Municipality.
“Currently Dubai has 91 places to practice sporting activities, including residential parks, public parks, squares, jogging tracks and beaches. In addition, every year the civic body opens new parks in more areas and adds sports equipment and tools for the public to promote a healthy community,” he added.
