In 2017, RunQ8 will be returning for its 7th year, to continue supporting children with disabilities.
Organized by FSRI, RunQ8 has become one of Kuwait’s most prominent charity sporting events. The annual race aims to raise awareness and funds to support CERC, our non-profit pediatrics facility which provides specialized, multi-disciplinary treatment and care for children with disabilities – including rehab for physical injuries, developmental disorders, speech, language and swallowing difficulties, behavioral difficulties, learning disabilities, and much more.
Proceeds from RunQ8 go towards enabling CERC to continue providing expert, quality care for children who otherwise may not get access to the care they need. The majority of raised funds are used to help families suffering from financial difficulties, providing them with treatment at a subsidized lower cost, or even for free in some cases.
One thing that has always made RunQ8 special: it is an event for everybody, regardless of age or fitness level. Running is one option, but definitely not a must. For those unable to run a marathon, they can walk, jog or just stroll. The important thing is participating and supporting this great cause.
Every year, RunQ8 enjoys the support of many local companies and organizations, and we are always delighted to welcome new partners looking to support this non-profit community initiative.
