Make your health count in the final days of February and then carry it over into March as The Galleria rolls out a series of events to keep you in tip-top condition.
It’s all going on at The Galleria mall during the next month or so, as the premier shopping destination invites families to an extravaganza of health and fitness events.
Grab your family and head to The Galleria special fan zone where you’ll be able to watch the only World Tour race in the Middle East. Massive LED screens will be in place so you don’t miss any of the action.
You’ll also get to compete against others in a virtual cycling zone, enjoy Scalextric and wheel of fortune games, and play foosball and other games. Little ones can head to the arts and crafts space and be part of the action.
The UAE Tour runs until 29th February, covering more than 1,000 kilometres across the UAE, with the final leg starting from Al Maryah Island on 29th February.
The Galleria will host the ceremonial start of the final stage along the waterfront promenade from 12:30 pm to 13:30 pm. Sport enthusiasts will have the opportunity to watch the cyclists on the promenade, with The Galleria offering prime views of the event.
Free cancer screening

Just head along to the Pink Caravan pop-up booth where free breast cancer screening services will be offered by experts, who are also there to chat to you about any of your concerns regarding the disease.
