Frequently Asked Questions

Here is a list of Frequently Asked Questions relating to the Mercithon event. If you have a question that is not mentioned here, please reach out to us directly and we will get back to you on the same.

Is there a special entrance and can I register at the event itself (same day)?

Prior registration has a lot of benefits over spot registration. Spot registration at the event would require you to stand in a cue on the day of the event (19th February 2023) at Creek Park, Gate 4. However, t-shirts are not guaranteed and one would have to stand in the cue instead of direct access to the park. We encourage prior registration.

How will I receive my T-shirt?

Your t-shirt(s) can be collected from the registration desks at St Mary’s Catholic Church Dubai no later than 18th February 2023. Your purchased ticket will be needed as proof during the collection of the t-shirt(s). If you are registering as a group of 10 or more, please email [email protected] to discuss possible delivery options.

What is the cost of registration?

  • Adult registration fees (18 years of age and above): 50 AED
  • Student registration fees (4 years of age – 17 years): 30 AED
  • Children (3 years of age and below) and Senior citizens (above 70 years): Free entry

What types of payment do you accept?

We accept payment only in cash. Online payment will be introduced shortly.

Where will the proceeds from this event go?

In association with Islamic Affairs License No (License No.: PRHCE-000520343), all funds raised will go to support the treatment of cancer patients irrespective of religion or nationality registered under Mercithon.

Is there an age limit on who can attend?

This is a family event, and we encourage all members to participate, regardless of age. 14 years and below need to be accompanied by a guardian.

Where can I park my car?

Parking at Creek Park is available. However, as a large crowd is expected, we encourage all participants to use public transportation on the day to avoid any parking issues.

Do I have to pay park entry fees?

No. As a participant, you are granted free access to the Creek Park for the event.
