"Since its establishment, the UAE has been extending a helping hand and providing assistance, benevolence and development to all peoples and charitable institutions, in line with the approach of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and his good deeds, which have extended generously to humanitarian arenas in all parts of the globe, to assist the weak, help the needy, and support those affected," said Sheikh Nahyan.

"The sixth edition of the marathon is part of the ‘Marathon giving approach,’ and its key message in support of sporting interactions, along with its keenness to invest in sports for charitable purposes, will help consolidate related principles, through a marathon bearing the name of Sheikh Zayed, the founder and builder of its union, and the first supporter of global aid initiatives," he added.

He also stressed that the UAE’s legacy is represented by its overall balance and the peace that it spreads to the entire world during every event, whether locally or globally.
