A slice of society that is often overlooked was out in full force Saturday having fun during the third annual Reaching U Family Fun Day at Jumeirah Beach Park.

The day provided a platform for special needs and mainstream children to interact and enjoy fun activities, under the sponsorship of The First Group.

The event was held under the patronage of Her Royal Highness Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein, wife of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

The First Group were delighted to support such a worthy cause and were proud to support Reaching U as part of their continued support of charitable organizations. 

Nick Watson, founder of u-concept and the reaching u initiative comments that “In Dubai alone, there are over 6000 children with special needs however caring for them is not always at the forefront of people’s minds, and events like reaching u just help in bringing all of us together”.
