Today I got an email from RunQ8 announcing another running event this year! It will be on January 21th , 2012
“RunQ8 is a 10K run organized by Fawzia Sultan Rehabilitation Institute (FSRI) and Agility. An annual event, the focus of the race is to raise public awareness regarding health issues affecting our community, to support medical institutions, and to encourage healthy living in our society.
Each year RunQ8 will adopt a different health issue and work towards raising awareness in the Kuwaiti society. The first RunQ8 race took place on the 6th of November 2010 under the patronage of the Minister of Health, Dr. Hilal Al-Sayer. In 2010, RunQ8 supported Kuwait University’s Community Eye Health Program “Vision 2020″ in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB).”
Unfortunately, I couldn’t go to the 2010 run, but this year I`m intending to do it! It gives me something to work out for. This somehow makes me more excited to exercise and to RUN!!! Energy booster!
