DUBAI, UAE - On September 20, Hilton Dubai The Walk held its challenging tower race for the third year, where 120 Participants ran up 730 steps over 36 floors of the iconic hotel, located in the heart of the Jumeirah Beach Residences. This year proceeds were donated to the Dubai Autism Centre. The runners not only supported a worthwhile cause, but were also able to enjoy the spectacular views of the Arabian Gulf at the finish line from the 35th floor.

The Hilton Tower Race received an amazing response from the local community as the event raised over 50,000 AED to support the Autism Centre and create social awareness for the cause. Proceeds were collected through the runners' registration fees and the kind sponsorship from Precor, AIG, QBG Services, Diversy, Aquila, Race ME and Sport360.

Andreas Searty, cluster general manager, Hilton Dubai Jumeirah Resort and Hilton Dubai The Walk, said: "We are pleased to have run this initiative for the third year. We bring people who care about Autism in order to do something supportive, charitable and athletic. We are encouraging a better education and understanding of Autism through educating society."
