Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel Dubai will take part in the fourth annual Walk Now for Autism event at Zabeel Park on Saturday, 21 April 2012, to help raise awareness about the condition.

Autism covers a spectrum of developmental disorders which affect a persons communication and social skills. Far more children today have autism than previously thought. According to a study, one child out of every 110 suffers from Autism in the UAE. Worldwide, autism affects approximately two of out of every 1,000 children.

Scott Butcher, General Manager of Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel Dubai, said, The high rate of autism is very concerning. Most people have no idea about how unrelentingly hard it is looking after autistic children. However, with the right guidance and support it is possible to cope better with such cases. Most importantly autistic people should not be stigmatised for their condition. Rather people with autism have been seen to make significant contributions to society in the right environment.

Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel Dubai places corporate social responsibility at the heart of its business practice. It is for the second time that the hotel will be supporting this campaign having already been a part of it in 2011.

Scott said, We are pleased to announce our participation this year in Walk Now for Autism and look forward to interacting with the local community on this important subject. At Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel Dubai, we are committed to support those who suffer from Autism.

Walk Now for Autism, organised in collaboration with the UAE Red Crescent Society, is a fun-filled family event that will begin at 5pm on 21 April 2012 at Zabeel Park. Over 5,000 children and adults of various nationalities are expected to participate. In addition to the walkathon, activities will include live music, educational events, market stalls, and a raffle.
