|“We are different, in essence, from other men. If you want to win something, run 100 meters. If you want to experience something, run a marathon.” – Emil Zatopek|
On January 24, 2014, I will embark on a new World Record breaking challenge. For 7 weeks, I will be travelling across the globe to complete an ultra marathon on each continent. I'm taking part in this record breaking attempt to raise funds and awareness for two charities; Maria Cristina Foundation and Pakistan Welfare Forum, Qatar. Both these charities have an excellent track record in providing free education and medical assistance, inter-alia, to underprivileged children. Please do all you can to help make a difference in the lives of these children who are not so fortunate to enjoy a decent living and basic education. Thank you!
