Aster Hospitals, Clinics & Pharmacies are proud to announce their continued support as the official Healthcare Partner for the highly anticipated seventh edition of Dubai Fitness Challenge (DFC). This collaboration marks the fourth consecutive year that Aster DM Healthcare has joined forces with DFC to encourage the community to adopt a healthier and more active lifestyle by committing to 30 minutes of exercise for 30 days.

In support of the vision of Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and Chairman of The Executive Council of Dubai, to transform Dubai into one of the most active cities in the world, the month-long initiative will also see Aster employees participate in various activities as a part of the Aster Wellbeing Initiative that is currently running in seven countries.

Speaking on the ongoing partnership, Ms. Alisha Moopen, Deputy Managing Director of Aster DM Healthcare, said: “At Aster, we have always believed that good health and a healthy lifestyle is the cornerstone of happiness and progress for people and society, and our endeavours as an organisation have always been directed towards ensuring the health and wellbeing of the community and our own Asterians in all the seven countries in which we operate. Over the years, Dubai Fitness Challenge has emerged as an annual initiative which transforms the lives of residents for 30 days, setting in motion a fitness and wellbeing journey for most residents. It has been our privilege to stand alongside Sheikh Hamdan’s vision to make the lives of Dubai residents healthier and happier.”
