DFC Ambassadors, Team Angel Wolf have enjoyed a busy schedule of #Dubai30x30 activities created for People of Determination for Dubai Fitness Challenge (DFC) 2018. Team Angel Wolf was founded by the Watson family (dad Nick, mum Delphine, daughter Tia and son Rio) to promote an active lifestyle and encourage the inclusion of people with disabilities. Rio has 1q44 Deletion DeNovo Syndrome which makes walking and communication difficult. The family decided that they were not going to let the diagnosis mean that Rio would be left out of activities and set forth to develop community-based activities under the banner #TogetherWeCan. Rio is included in the family’s exercise routine, and he is pushed in a specially designed chair for runs, towed for bike rides, and for the water-based part of the activities he rides high in a kayak.

On Friday 2 November 2018, Tia and Rio competed in TriFest by Race ME Events at Jebel Ali Waterfront, a DFC partner event, with a special goal in mind - creating a new Official World Record. The record, once official confirmation comes in, will be: ‘Female, 11 years or younger, completing a Sprint Distance Triathlon race whilst hauling a male sibling who has disabilities’.

For Dubai Fitness Challenge, the team has been holding weekly events at DFC Fitness Villages where People of Determination, families, beginners and seasoned athletes can come together to #RideWithRio and #RunWithRio. Participants of DFC and the wider community are encouraged to join Team Angel Wolf at the following events taking place during DFC:

  • #RideWithRio at Al Khawaneej Fitness Village (presented by ENOC in association with Dubai Municipality) on 20 November 17:00 PM – 18:00.
  • #TeamAngelWolf Together We Can - a free, inclusive, community program, held at The Sustainable City, every Sunday evenings at 18:00

Topping Team Angel Wolf’s packed schedule for DFC is participation in the X3 Junior Triathlon on 23 November being held at La Mer from 8.30am onwards. Tia and Rio participated in the event in 2017 and will be back again this year demonstrating the family’s commitment to inclusiveness, sport and being role models for community fitness activities.
