Dubai: A 2-km walkathon called WeWalk by Tecom Group will be held in collaboration with Dubai Autism Centre this Friday at Dubai Design District.

The walk will start from 7.30am at The Block in D3 and costs Dh50 to enter with proceeds going to Dubai Autism Centre, a non-profit organisation that serves children with autism spectrum disorders in the UAE. Funds raised from a raffle will also go to the charity.
