The Final Leg in Abu Dhabi kicked off on Sunday, March 2nd and eagerly watching Derek’s updates on social media.
The torch was lit from the Flame of Hope at the Founders memorial to start the final leg journey. A visit to the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company HQ before the Final Leg team headed to Fujairah to continue.
Meet Chaica, Team 7’s Special Olympics athlete from the UAE, fresh off an audience with the Pope last week and a talk at the UN before that!
The support for the Games is evident across the region.
A run into Fujairah Fort led by Special Olympics Ontario athlete Stephen Graham! Ceremony in front of His Highness the Crown Prince of Fujairah included everything from the bagpipes to horses. Tremendous welcomes at every stop as we build towards the opening ceremonies!
Thank you for the updates Derek! Stay tuned for more as the Final Leg continues across Abu Dhabi.
