Are those New Year’s fitness resolutions starting to falter? Are you in search of a motivational boost? Then why not join one of this year’s AMAR Challenges? Each step you take will help us to save lives and strengthen communities in the Middle East.
This year, Team AMAR will be taking on the Virgin Sport British 10K, the Manchester Half-Marathon, the Bristol Half-Marathon, the Henley 10K trail and the Thames Bridges Challenge (a 25 kilometre walk along the River Thames).
AMAR CEO Richard Crow led by example, lacing up his running shoes for the British 10K in 2016: “It was great fun”, he said, “AMAR only puts forward a small team for the event, meaning that there is a really friendly team spirit. I sincerely hope that people throughout the UK will sign up to make this another great summer for Team AMAR.’
“The atmosphere of the British 10K was pretty amazing”, said Mysa Kafil-Hussain who joined the same run in 2013, “There was a really positive, festival-like, feeling to the event. It was tough but it was rewarding to know that I was raising both funds and awareness for AMAR’s amazing work.”
Mysa is just one member of the ever-growing Team AMAR. By signing up for one of these events, you’ll join a community of AMAR supporters who are ready to challenge themselves in support of AMAR’s work in Iraq and Lebanon.
