We need your voting skills again! We've Got Your Back, our [sameness] project with Dubai taxi drivers, has been nominated for the UAE Fit Awards 2014, and it could be the perfect way to kickstart this cool project again...
We've Got Your Back is up for Health & Fitness Initiative of the Year, alongside some other cool programs, and all you need to do is click the voting image below, find the [sameness] project and give us your vote.
Without a major sponsor we haven't been able to run We've Got Your Back since way back in February and we're hoping a good showing at the UAE Fit Awards could push this awesome [sameness] project back into the spotlight and enable us to roll out the goodness once again.
Voting closes on 1st December so don't delay!

HERE'S THE DETAILS OF WE'VE GOT YOUR BACK:
We've Got Your Back is a project about seeing and appreciating the taxi drivers of Dubai, and equally for the community to engage with them beyond their role as a taxi driver.
Taxi drivers work crazy long shifts and We've Got Your Back is a pretty simple project where we take professional fitness trainers out onto the streets of Dubai to find taxi drivers and run them through a basic set of stretches.
The stretches are designed to help the cabbies bodies cope with the stresses of sitting for such long periods of time and the project is designed to let these hard working men and women know that they matter, and that we are looking out for them!
