If you like running, and giving back to a good cause, then RunQ8 is calling your name.
The charity race organized by the Fawzia Sultan Rehabilitation Institute (FSRI) is back for a fifth year, and hoping to bring together more than 2000 runners from across Kuwait to support a very important cause.
RunQ8 aims to raise awareness of and funds for the Children’s Evaluation and Rehabilitation Center (CERC); FSRI’s specialized non-profit facility which provides specialized and multi-disciplinary care, treatment and support for children with disabilities. The Center provides comprehensive programs that include physical therapy, speech therapy, psychology and occupational therapy.
All proceeds from the race will go towards enabling CERC to continue providing highly specialized quality care to the children in this community. The majority of the raised funds will be used to help children and families that have been unsuccessful in obtaining the treatment and support they need elsewhere, providing them access to much needed treatment at a subsidized lower cost, or even for free in some cases.
Almost 1800 people took part in the race last year, raising a considerable sum that went towards improving the lives of so many children in need. This year, RunQ8 is looking to be bigger than ever before and help an even greater number of people.
The 10km race is open to people of all ages and fitness levels. And if you are not into running, you can choose to walk, jog or stroll; just as long as you take part. It’s all in the name of a good cause.
