Myself (Ariff) and Sakina will taking part in Stanmore Jafferys Sportive in support of Dar az Zahra.
We will both be running London Marathon 26.2 miles (42.19km) 2nd October and Run to the Sea Ultra Marathon 31 miles (50km) 15th October.
That's a Whooping 184.38 km between Sakina and myself.
When we begin to struggle, what will keep us going is our promise to the orphans in Iraq.
1 in 6 children in Iraq are orphans. Millions more are displaced or living in poverty. They need our help.
Without adequate support, many orphans and displaced children are sadly forced to leave school and find work that is low paying and unreliable. Many of these children are led into a recurring cycle of poverty, passed on from one generation to the next and deprived of opportunities available to their peers
The Dar al Zahra school is working to end this cycle.
The Dar al Zahra school in Najaf, founded in 2008, serves over 1,000 vulnerable children with 85% of students being orphans.
All funds collected as part of this campaign will be dedicated to providing education and welfare.
We are truly humbled and grateful for your generous contributions.
