Ladies and Gentlemen:

I was totally flabbergasted by the enormous support and encouragement I received form friends and family. As some of you already aware that I completed the marathon and in the process better my record, very pleased with my efforts.

I would like to take this opportunity to say a BIG thank you for your support, I really appreciated that. I would also like to thank Saif Manzor for providing me this opportunity to raise money for this privileged cause and IlmoAmal team who are doing a fantastic job in the background, well done guys.
