Executive Challenge2019-01-17T19:00:57+04:00


Calling all C-level executives, Director Generals, Managing Directors, General Managers and Executive Directors!

Inspire the community to get more physically active, and raise awareness for Cancer Patient Care in the UAE, by taking part in our Executive Challenge – an “activity sprint”.

The Executive Challenge is open to C-level executives, DGs, MDs, GMs, Executive Directors and equivalent.

We encourage personal donations from each Exec’s own pocket directly to Rahma – Cancer Patient Care Society (charity partner of the Abu Dhabi Dash). Money will go towards purchasing chemotherapy packages and giving help to those who need it most.

By leading from the front our Execs can inspire others to be more physically active.


  1. Execs all begin at the start/finish line
  2. Run 10 metres down allocated lane to the first station and perform “10 squats to wall ball”
  3. Run back to the start/finish line
  4. Run 20 metres and perform “10 hand release/clap push ups”
  5. Run back to the line
  6. Run 30 metres and perform “10 lay downs”
  7. Run back to the line
  8. Run 40 metres and perform “10 burpees”
  9. Sprint finish to the line

The challenge consists of four activity stations and a total of 200m running.
