Event description
Ahmed Ali is an avid runner, a passionate volunteer and a humanitarian at heart. Since the age of 15 he has been volunteering his time and energy to make a difference to people in need. At the age of 21 he setup ‘Draw a Smile’ in his homeland of Egypt to help vulnerable children.

Ahmed has started the #Eid2EidChallenge to support Al Jalila Foundation and will run 5kms daily for 67 days, from EidAlFitr to EidAlAdha, to give hope to children.

He is calling on the UAE running community to join the #Eid2EidChallenge by registering on Hopasports for AED 50 per person and 100% will be donated to Al Jalila Foundation.

The event is endorsed by Dubai Sports Council and sponsored by MonViso.

Please read Ahmed's message and join him to save children’s lives:

“This time I will be challenging myself to consistently run 5kms a day for the next 67 days. These runs will be in support of raising awareness for the beautiful #GirlonFire Lynn who suffers from #Erythromelalgia.

I will be raising funds for Al Jalila Foundation Farah program. Farah, ‘happiness’ in Arabic, is Al Jalila Foundation’s paediatric program which provides life-saving treatment, funds cutting edge research and offers hope to countless children and their families. Through Farah we spread hope, joy and happiness to children suffering from heart disease, cancer and other chronic illnesses.

I look forward to the support of all the amazing humans behind the running community here in the UAE.

The only time you should ever look back, is to see how far you've come!”

Note: If you wish to start your own fundraising campaign please get in touch via email with Hopasports.
