Over 1,200 participate in UAE National Day charity mini-marathon at AUS
More than 1,200 participants from private and public schools, universities and colleges from Sharjah and Dubai, including people with special needs and members of the general public, took part in the 13th Charity Mini-Marathon held by American University of Sharjah (AUS) on Saturday, November 29, 2014.
Organized by the Office of Student Affairs' Community Services Office, the marathon was held as part of the UAE's 43rd National Day celebrations.
Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, expressed her gratitude to Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qassimi, Member of the Supreme Council of the UAE, Ruler of Sharjah and President of AUS, for his support and mentioned that without his directives the marathon wouldn't have turned into a substantial charitable annual event. "It is overwhelming to witness the devotion among our students towards humanitarian work and volunteering. This year's marathon is also dedicated to the 43rd UAE National Day celebrations. I take this opportunity to extend my congratulations to all the great leaders of our nation, its citizens and residents on this occasion," she said.
Funds generated from the event will be used to support various charity initiatives at AUS.
