Terry Fox Run 2015

Feb 27 2015

It was a beautiful Friday morning… Koko, Nonong & I scheduled for our first 5K run!

So what is this run all about?

Terry Fox is a Canadian cancer patient who ran around Canada to raise awareness about this type of illness. He suffered cancer and eventually died in 1981. His cause didn’t stop as his legacy continue when some other people started his yearly 5K run to raise awareness and funds about the cancer research. In UAE it has been 20 years since they started this event and today after 6 years if being in Abu Dhabi… We decided to join.

This is our first 5K run together! 🙂

How beautiful the morning is, seeing enthusiastic runners.

Hello hello CANADA! 🙂 

Tripper Kokobears… hehehe

Over-all we had fun, seeing a lot of new faces from different parts of the world  – different races that willing to give their own share to the foundation. It was indeed a good experience for me hitting the road – some fats somehow burnt. hehehe 🙂
