Doha Bank hosted a special edition of the ‘Al Dana’ Green Run community fun and awareness event on Saturday (November 24) to commemorate Qatar hosting the United Nations Climate Change Conference, which begins today.
The event welcomed over 2,500 visitors, including 2,000 race participants and is the most successful Al Dana Green Run ever held.
The 8th installation of Al Dana Green Run was held at Aspire Zone and race participants ran a 3-km course set around Khalifa Stadium and its surrounding facilities.
Al Dana Green Run has grown considerably over the years and is today one of the most prominent green initiatives that Doha Bank organises and supports, according to the bank group CEO R Seetharaman.
“We expect the next edition in 2013 to be an even more resounding success as people benefit from the great value of corporate, public and personal commitment to protecting the environment,” he said, adding every small commitment, be it using sustainable green technologies, or just optimising resources like water, energy and even food, made a difference and Doha Bank was committed to supporting the future sustainability of the world.
