Beat Diabetes 2011: Come walk with us

As we inch closer and gear up for the Beat Diabetes 2011 walkathons, I am filled with a sense of pride at the success of this initiative across all the countries.

We have also partnered with the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) earlier in the year, making the Landmark Group, one of the first corporate retail supporter partner to the IDF.

The support of our customers has been integral to the success of the campaign and I look forward to this continued support in the coming years as well.Micky Jagtiani, Chairman, The Landmark Group

As the first Walkathon of 2011 flags off on Friday, November 18 in the UAE followed by others across different participating countries, I am extremely optimistic that many more people will join our hands to spread awareness about diabetes.

Registrations are ongoing and I hope all of you have registered yourself and your families for the walk. If not, you can still register at your nearest participating outlet and pledge your support for the cause.

As someone living with type 2 diabetes, this campaign is very close to my heart and I want to thank each one of you for joining hands in spreading awareness.
