During this time of self-isolation and uncertainty, our view is to maintain health, wellbeing and a positive outlook while being kind and supportive to one another.
We are launching an "At home with G4G" campaign to share content relating to promoting health, wellbeing and kindness.
This time will pass and it is important for communities to support one another even while apart.
We are online and here to help, please reach out if anything.
In response to the current COVID19 situation, our challenge plans for Uganda, Kilimanjaro, Machu Picchu and Lebanon currently remain unchanged however we are aware that the situation is very dynamic and uncertain.
Due to Nepal restricting tourist visas, our Everest Base Camp challenge scheduled for April 10-24th has been rescheduled and merged with our May group between 21st May - 1st June.
We will continue to monitor the situation closely and as any information arises from the relevant authorities we will update you on any impact to the challenges.
The health and safety of our challengers is of utmost importance, along with the welfare and progress of our partner charity projects.
We endeavor to run our challenges this year as best we can given the circumstances and will avoid cancelling them as much as possible. In the event we do need to change them due to travel restrictions, we will postpone them to another suitable date and inform all involved parties.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during these unusual times we are facing. It certainly gives full meaning to the word 'challenge'.
Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns or questions.
In line with the UAE's announcement to limit all public gatherings, we honour and respect this decision and therefore will postpone all weekend training activities during March.
We hope everyone is still able to take advantage of the fresh air and temperate weather and keep up their own exercise. A 20 minutes walk outdoors has been proven to enhance health and wellbeing.
We are postponing this weekend's Jebel Jais season finale to later in the year and will inform you as soon as we have set a date. For those that have already booked on, you will be credited this amount to a rescheduled activity.
We remind everyone to stay clean, think positive and keep up exercise.
With the current Covid-19 situation, we appreciate the day-to-day impact this may have for people. Promoting health, safety and wellbeing is a core value and top priority at Gulf for Good.
Keeping fit and healthy is one of the best protections from illness. The fitter you are, the easier it is to ward off illness. Eat well, sleep well, think positive and keep up exercise.
On that note, Gulf for Good encourages you to continue joining our outdoor activities, enjoying the fresh air, sunshine and exercise. Therefore, all of our international challenges and weekend training activities are going ahead as planned.
We are monitoring the situation closely and will react accordingly, if needed and only inline with WHO Guidelines.
We ask participants and challengers to adhere to common sense factors such as not sharing water bottles or snacks and limit physical contact such as shaking hands or other greetings. Hand sanitiser will be available.
We recommend following the World Health Organisation's guidelines and updates which you can find here: https://www.who.int/news-room/articles-detail/updated-who-recommendations-for-international-traffic-in-relation-to-covid-19-outbreak
