Alhamdullilah this Ramadan I’ve Partnered up with
I’m stoked to announce that I’ll be running in Palestine with team PennyAppeal in March inshallah! This news couldn’t have come at a better time for me for so many emotional and personal reasons. With one year since the passing of my Baba, I found myself living each day somberly; missing him greatly and losing some motivation in my running. Raising money for Refugee rooftop gardens gives me a sense of purpose so close to his date of passing.
I don’t think this invitation to run with team PennyAppealUSA in Palestine (omg I can’t believe I’ll be running the holy streets of Jerusalem) was a coincidence. Raising money in his honor, and for the Palestinian refugees goes hand in hand,. This opportunity to RUN in the HOLY city is something I could only dream of. And now since the opportunity presents itself, I want to make sure I make it all worth it.
