Commercial Bank marks National Sport Day with various activities
Doha: Commercial Bank employees celebrated National Sports Day with a mix of physical activities, staff wellness and a Qatari community outreach programme. Female employees enjoyed Zumba sessions at Commercial Bank Plaza, while the men took on challenging fitness class, with table tennis and table football available for all staff to play.
To promote employee health and wellness, a diabetes risk assessment station was made available on February 12 at the bank headquarters. Run by a medical team from the Qatar Diabetes Association (QDA), staff underwent a number of simple tests including taking body measurements, blood pressure and blood sugar levels. The QDA team were on hand to explain the results of the risk assessment and give advice to staff about diabetes and ways to prevent it through adopting a healthy lifestyle.
To engage with the wider Qatari community and share the Sports Day celebrations with key Qatari entities, volunteers from Commercial Bank distributed special National Sports Day gifts at the Qatar Society for Rehabilitation of Special Needs, independent schools, the children’s floor at Hamad Hospital and at Al Wakrah Hospital.
Commercial Bank EGM and Chief Marketing Officer, Hussein M Ali Al Abdulla said: “Commercial Bank are proud supporters of the National Sports Day initiative under the leadership of H H the Emir ...we are active in promoting sport more widely in Qatar through sponsoring the international Commercial Bank Qatar Masters and organising local community sports activities.”
