Fact Not Fiction

As I am sure most of you are aware that tomorrow morning the Dubai Marathon is taking place, no great surprise that it is the richest race in the world with a massive 1 Million USD prize fund.   I am not going to ramble on about a more than well sponsored event, but I am going to tell you about a guy who is running the Marathon tomorrow on behalf of a charity which I absolutely adore.   Mohammed, better known to most as @wildpeeta is running tomorrow to raise funds for a lesser know charity called The 8 Day Academy.

The 8 Day Academy is a wonderful initiative that was set up by Masarat Daud-Jamar, a very passionate and warm lady whom I have had the pleasure of meeting on many occasions.  I admire her strength and determination and watch from afar the amazing work she has done over the last 18 months.  Mohammed along with some of the other Twitterati have set up a charity auction on Twitter which has been running all day, people bidding for donated items to raise money for the 8 Day Academy.  You can find more information by searching #twauction on Twitter.

I just want to wish Mohammed all the luck in the world for tomorrow, and everyone else too who is going to be running for any charities, the race may well be the richest race in the orld but in my opinion, wealth should be managed in kindness, and Mohammed and Masarat will be testament to that.

Well done!!
